Graham’s contributions include Stop Stop Stop and Carrie Anne from his time with The Hollies and there are solo standouts such as Chicago/We Can Change The World and Military Madness.

Classic Rock said “A magical evening celebrating the work of a talented musician and of music that helped define a generation”

The Daily Mail concluded “Witty and warm, it’s a Nash hit”

No Depression proclaimed “Nash walked the audience through his catalogue, a rich tapestry of music spanning more than five decades, accompanied by Shane Fontayne on guitar and vocals. The strength of the material and the resilience in Nash’s voice made for a wonderful evening. And, as the crowd soon discovered, the new songs were every bit as vital as the classic anthems they came to hear.”

Graham Nash is a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee and two-time Songwriter Hall of Fame Inductee, Grammy Award winner, a New York Times best-selling author, and Officer of the Order of the British Empire (O.B.E.)

On January 31, the UK Americana Music Association presented Nash with its highest honour, the Lifetime Achievement Award, which was presented to Nash by Hollies’ co-founder, Allan Clarke. Past recipients of the award include Richard Thompson and Robert Plant.
