What better way to spend your time on the eve of the election, than with the 60's counter-culture duo David Crosby & Graham Nash?

The Riverside was filled with all of the warm harmonization from their extensive body of work, as well as new material from their latest self-titled release Crosby & Nash. Since hooking up for the first time in '68, the two have never ceased touring and recording together. Branching out into solo endeavors, like tributaries off of a great river, Crosby has brought forward hits such as "Eight Miles High," "Guinnevere," Long Time Gone," "Wooden Ships," and "Deja vu," as well as forming CPR - a jazz laden trio - alongside his son, keyboardist James Raymond. Raymond penned and performed this evening his beautiful cut titled "Lay Me Down" - a gorgeous piece of music from their latest release! Nash - on the other hand - is responsible for hits such as "Teach Your Children," "Our House," "Marrakesh Express," and the song that won him a $500 bet. The wager was put in place that he - being a songwriter - wouldn't be able to write a song in the time remaining before he was to be taken to the airport. Thanks to that, "Just A Song Before I Go" was born.

As their solo waters have forked this great countryside over the years, they've always seemed to meander themselves back to that great river of one - "two together." Billed as An Evening With David Crosby & Graham Nash, It's fitting that they played The Riverside. Get on your "Wooden Ships" boys; may your journey's never end! Thanks for sharing the riches along the way...
