Graham Nash thrills audiences for two sold out nights at City Winery, Chicago: May 11 and 12 2016.
City Winery Chicago
Immediately the overwhelming observation is the big duet sound Graham Nash, and Shane Fontayne produced on stage between harmonized vocals and guitar. Fontayne (Sting, Springsteen, Richard Marx, John Waite, Lone Justice) is not only Nash's onstage partner but also his songwriting collaborator on the new release 'This Path Tonight,' of which is a strong collection of songs threaded together with Nash's iconic voice and harmonies.
The welcoming setting of City Winery seems to invite an intimate dialogue between the stage and the audience. Graham was generous with stories, banter and song introductions as he was completely at ease with his fans. Graham shared the story of how he wrote 'Cathedral' as was inspired by an acid trip that started at Stone Henge and ended at Winchester Cathedral. And in his words "How could I not play 'Chicago' here?" On a serious note, Nash premiered a deluxe track from 'This Path Tonight' titled 'Mississippi Burning.' It is a powerful foot-stomping blues number, and a story not to forget about the three civil rights activists murdered back in 1964. The show was a great mix of hits peppered with a few new songs.
