Graham Nash
Sun, Aug 7 onetime 8 PM - 10 PM
Location: Lensic Performing Arts Center

Legendary singer-songwriter Graham Nash is a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee—with Crosby, Stills, and Nash and with the Hollies. He was also inducted into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame twice, as a solo artist and with CSN, and he is a Grammy Award winner. Nash's passionate voice continues to be heard in support of peace, and social and environmental justice. The No Nukes/Musicians United for Safe Energy (MUSE) concerts he organized with Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt in 1979 remain seminal benefit events. In 2011, Nash was instrumental in bringing MUSE back to the forefront with a concert to benefit Japan disaster relief and groups promoting non-nuclear energy worldwide.

Nash's critically acclaimed new album, This Path Tonight, was released in April. "At times, the production carries an adult contemporary air reminiscent of Daylight Again, elsewhere it's as spare as he's ever been, and the two aesthetics blend into a record that's comforting yet not complacent. Nash is no longer looking at the past; he's looking at the future and he's embracing all the changes to come.” (All Music Guide)

Lake Street Dive
Mon, Aug 8 onetime 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
Location: Lensic Performing Arts Center

Lake Street Dive are a fascinating blend of influences and complexity: jazz at heart, with an alternative D.I.Y. sensibility and a passion for classic rock and garage aesthetics. The band's initial idea was to be a kind of free jazz country band, playing country songs in an avant-garde style, but the group's natural pop instincts kicked in, and the final sound the band came up with was a bright, fresh, charming, and exploratory version of jazzy pop/rock, full of hooks and plenty of R&B and soul flavors, with a big dose of the Beatles and British Invasion bands. In 2016, Lake Street Dive released their fifth full-length album Side Pony on Nonesuch Records. The title refers to a whimsical hairstyle but also serves as a metaphor for the band's philosophy and personality – A band steeped in Motown Soul, Beatles melodies, and pop divas from Dusty Springfield to Adele.
