The seminal voice of ’70s supergroup Crosby Stills & Nash, comes to Scarborough next week for Record Store Day. On April 16th singer Graham Nash presses the flesh at Bull Moose to celebrate vinyl, meet fans and tout his new solo album: “This Path Tonight,” which drops that day.
The songwriter is a founding member of the feel good Woodstock era band and English pop group The Hollies. This is his first record in 14 years.
It is filled with a sea of soulful new ballads, sung in Nash’s recognizable, wistful tenor. On Record Store Day, purchases of the album will receive a bonus: a seven inch of Nash-penned classics like “Our House” and “Teach Your Children.” From the first note his voice transports you back to the free spirited 70’s with its sunny cadence and plaintive punch.
The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer will sign autographs beginning at 1 p.m. We wish he would perform just a song before he goes, but judging from past Record Store Days — Mike Mill’s warm and chatty appearance a few years back — the rocker will give fans ample juice. There should be time to ask about dating Joni Mitchell and if David Crosby’s inhospitable behavior means the band won’t be getting back together. Sharpen your Sharpies!
Bull Moose, Scarborough 456 Payne Road.
