Legendary singer-songwriter Graham Nash has announced the first string of dates on his 2016 This Path Tonight Tour in support of his new album.
Along with guitarist and producer Shane Fontayne, Graham Nash will perform a series of dates across the United States in 2016, starting January 27 in Ponte Vedra, FL and wrapping up February 22 in Tarrytown, NY.
Fans who pre-order the new studio album, will have first in line access to pre-sale seats through the official Graham Nash website beginning December 1, 2015. Nash will continue his long-time tradition of raising money for charity through the Guacamole Fund's special benefit seats; in addition, he will be donating $1 per ticket sold to charity. Advance tickets for this show, including special benefit seats, go on sale December 1 in conjunction with Giving Tuesday.
Graham will be partnering with Musicians United for Safe Energy (M.U.S.E.) to raise funds on its behalf by offering special benefit seating. – M.U.S.E., a long time associate of The Guacamole Fund, is a non-profit organization that supports organizations worldwide that promote safe, alternative non-nuclear energy.
“When you strip a song down to its very essence, you either have a song worth singing… or you don’t,” says Nash. “Playing music with Shane Fontayne is and always will be very satisfying. He has an innate sense of ‘performance’ and of arrangement. He never loses sight of the fact that the song must ‘come alive’, must have a reason for being sung in the first place. We want to look in the eyes of our audience, we want to know that we are connecting on a very real level. What a pleasure this tour will be for me.”
This Path Tonight is the new studio album and collection of 10 original songs from Graham Nash. Produced by Shane Fontayne, this is Nash’s first solo record of new music in fourteen years. The album is one of reflection and transition of a singer-songwriter whose career (the Hollies, CSN, CSNY) has spanned more than five decades and counting.
“What a pleasure it was recording this album,” says Graham Nash. “Shane and I had written 20 songs in a month and recorded them in eight days. The music has a different feel to my earlier albums although I hear echoes of each one. This journey of mine was one of self-discovery, of intense creation, of absolute passion.”
This Path Tonight is available for pre-order now through Amazon and iTunes.
