The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall hosted Graham Nash, the legendary singer-songwriter and founding member of Crosby, Stills and Nash and the Hollies, will kick off his “This Path Tonight” U.S. tour with a performance at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall on Wednesday, January 27, 2016.

Legendary singer-songwriter Graham Nash is a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee with Crosby, Stills and Nash and with the Hollies. He was also inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame twice, as a solo artist and with CSN, is a GRAMMY Award winner, a New York Times best-selling author, and Officer of the Order of the British Empire (O.B.E.)

Nash recently announced his 2016 U.S. Tour and the release of his new studio album, This Path Tonight to be released on April 15, 2016. The album will be released on CD, digital and vinyl thru Nash’s Blue Castle Label, distributed thru ADA worldwide. This Path Tonight is the new studio album and collection of 10 original songs from Graham Nash. Produced by Shane Fontayne, this is Nash’s first solo record of new music in fourteen years. The album is one of reflection and transition of a singer-songwriter whose career (the Hollies, CSN, CSNY) has spanned more than five decades and counting. “What a pleasure it was recording this album,” says Graham Nash. “Shane and I had written 20 songs in a month and recorded them in eight days. The music has a different feel to my earlier albums although I hear echoes of each one.

This journey of mine was one of self-discovery, of intense creation, and of absolute passion.  “When you strip a song down to its very essence, you either have a song worth singing… or you don’t,” says Nash. “Playing music with Shane Fontayne is and always will be very satisfying. He has an innate sense of ‘performance’ and of arrangement. He never loses sight of the fact that the song must ‘come alive’, must have a reason for being sung in the first place. We want to look in the eyes of our audience, we want to know that we are connecting on a very real level. What a pleasure this tour will be for me.”
