David Crosby and Graham Nash have been harmonizing ever since Crosby, Stills & Nash formed in 1968, and have recorded and toured as a duo for almost as long. Coinciding with the start of the spring U.S. tour, Crosby and Nash also launched their new independent label, Blue Castle Records, with digital and vinyl versions of the live album Another Stoney Evening, an acoustic show recorded on October 10, 1971 at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles.
Another Stoney Evening captures one of Crosby and Nash's very first concert performances as a twosome, and spotlights their legendary harmonies as well as between-song banter. The song selection includes "Deja Vu," "Wooden Ships," "Southbound Train," "Immigration Man," "Guinevere," and "Teach Your Children," all of which make the set list on the current2011 Crosby-Nash tour.
Crosby and Nash are accompanied on the road by an ace-backing band featuring Crosby's son James Raymond(keyboards), Dean Parks (guitar), Kevin McCormick (bass), and Steve DiStanislao (drums). The tour will mix acoustic and plugged-in performances, and will continue on with a European leg this fall.
Prior to the Crosby-Nash European tour, David Crosby and Graham Nash will perform two Crosby, Stills, & Nash dates withStephen Stills (who is touring next month with Buffalo Springfield), at the Beacon Theatre in New York City on August 30 & 31.
David Crosby and Graham Nash have each been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice—once with Crosby, Stills & Nash/Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, and a second time with the Byrds and the Hollies, respectively. They have also bee inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
