Legendary artist Graham Nash, as a founding member of both the Hollies and Crosby, Stills and Nash, is a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee. He has seen rock history unfold at some of its seminal moments – from the launch of the British Invasion to the birth of the Laurel Canyon movement a year later. An extraordinary Grammy Award® winning renaissance artist – and self-described “simple man” – Nash was inducted twice into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, for his work with CSN and his work as a solo artist.

The first time banjo legend Béla Fleck, tabla master Zakir Hussain, and double bass virtuoso Edgar Meyer got together to make an album, it was to write, not to play.

On a night that celebrated both the legacy of jazz and the 125th anniversary of the historic Chautauqua Auditorium, the legendary Herbie Hancock took center stage, casting a spell over an audience ready for musical transcendence. As the first notes of "Overture" filled the auditorium, there was a collective sense of anticipation. The piece, laden with a spectrum of emotions and textures, set the tone for the evening.
