Crosby, Stills & Nash blend old, new

  // Sunday, 24 August 2014 17:54 //

David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash, the supergroup that made its concert debut 45 years ago this month at Woodstock, brought much nostalgia to the Saenger Theatre on Saturday night. But showing they’re still a creative force, they blended new songs amid the classics.

The concert — featuring the trio with a full band, plus Nash and Crosby as a duo as well as all three members in solo performances — unreeled as a variety show and a career-spanning retrospective.

Nash, 72, often stood center stage. He acted as low-key master of ceremonies and cheerleader for Crosby, 73, Stills, 69, and the band members.

“How are you this evening, New Orleans?” the British-born Nash asked on a night of steambath humidity. “Warm enough for you?”

From the evening’s opening song, it was obvious that Crosby, Stills & Nash’s one-of-a-kind vocal blend remains intact. Nash and Crosby have stronger voices than their colleague, but Stills’ guitar skills were undiminished, and his singing improved as the show went on.
