Graham Nash tells stories and plays at the Bardavon

Graham Nash seems to be fully enjoying a late career run, making new music, writing and talking freely about the old music and just being the legendarily decent and elegant guy he is reported to be. A founding member of the Hollies and a constant in all the alphabet soup of CSNY, CSN and CN, Nash lived the ’60s and the classic rock era in a way to which few others can claim, coming up on the same scene as the Beatles and continuing into the present as one of the godfathers of folk/rock. He has written more hits than you probably realize. And he knows everyone. That is why it is hard to say which is the more alluring part of this date: the songs or the stories. Luckily, we don’t have to decide.

The Bardavon presents an Intimate Evening of Songs & Stories with Graham Nash & Trio at its namesake Poughkeepsie theater on Sunday, September 22. Ticket prices range from $50 to $75, with a $5 discount for members.
