Crosby Stills & Nash

crosby-stills-nashCrosby, Stills & Nash (CSN) are a folk rock/rock supergroup made up of David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash They are noted for their intricate vocal harmonies, often tumultuous interpersonal relationships, political activism, and lasting influence on music and culture.

The musical partnership was not only one of the most successful touring and recording acts of the late ’60s, ’70s, and early ’80s, with the colourful, contrasting nature of the members’ characters and their connection to the political and cultural upheavals of the time. It was the only American-based band to approach the overall societal impact of the Beatles.

The group was a second marriage for all the participants when it came together in 1968: Crosby had been a member of the Byrds, Nash was in the Hollies, and Stills had been part of Buffalo Springfield. The resulting trio, however, sounded like none of its predecessors and was characterized by a unique vocal blend and a musical approach that ranged from acoustic folk to melodic pop to hard rock

So with that back drop it will be fasinating to watch their proformance in Manchester at the MEN Arena on theĀ  Friday 10th July 2009 – 7.30pm and tickets are available from here.
