GRAHAM NASH – ” Graham Nash: Live “

Posted: March 23, 2022 in MUSIC

Graham Nash has announced “Graham Nash: Live“, a new concert album featuring the acclaimed musician performing his first two solo LPs, 1971’s “Songs For Beginners” and 1974’s “Wild Tales“, in their entirety.

“I’ve been trying to figure out why “Songs For Beginners” and “Wild Tales” [were] so popular and I think it’s that intimacy and that immediacy of my emotions,” Nash explained via press release.

Recorded on tour in 2019, Graham Nash: Live sees the singer accompanied by a seven-piece band led by his long time collaborators, Shane Fontayne (guitar and vocals) and Todd Caldwell (keyboards and vocals).

In anticipation of the album, Nash has released the live version of “Military Madness,” originally from Songs For Beginners. In a statement accompanying the single, the rocker noted that the anti-war song continues to resonate more than 50 years after it was written.

“We’re supposed to learn from history and it doesn’t appear as if we’re learning much,” Nash proclaimed. “Songs like ‘Military Madness’…is that not relevant today? The hope that we can change the world, isn’t that still relevant today? I’m very flattered that my music seems to have lasted this long, but I’m also a little upset that we have to keep singing a song like ‘Military Madness’ right up to the present. Enough already!”

Nash is in the midst of a national tour scheduled to run through the end of October (remaining tour dates can be found below). In addition to songs from his solo career, fans can expect to hear material from his days in the Hollies, as well as Crosby, Stills & Nash.

“Graham Nash: Live – Songs For Beginners / Wild Tales” – Out May 6th, 2022.
