Graham may now be 81-years-old, but he sounded and looked great! He was like anyone might remember him as a singer, guitarist, pianist and harmonica player, alongside the dual excellence of guitarist Shane Fontayne and keyboardist/organist Todd Caldwell, while looking healthy and happy to be back on the stage.
Nash verbally saluted the late David Crosby, while also addressing Stephen Stills’ “Love The One You’re With” and Neil Young’s “Only Love Can Break Your Heart,” remarking the collaborators mainly spoke to one another through songwriting rather than actual words.
A favorite part of the show is when Nash told the story of him and Joni Mitchell and she bought a vase at an antique store, because it was cheap. He then sang his hit, "Our House".
Nash, a Brit who has lived in the States since 1968, spoke out against the war in Ukraine, before singing a medley of "Find the Cost of Freedom" a cappella and "Military Madness" in which he inserted a lyric about Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Nash also sang "Marrakesh Express", "Immigration Man", "Simple Man", "Bus Stop" by the Hollies (Nash's first group back in England), and many others.
Nash ended his wonderful concert with the awesome song "Teach Your Children". He encouraged the audience to sing along with him.
Nash put on a fantastic show!
