Graham Nash Visits Cuyahoga County Public Library

Photo credit: Janet Macoska,
Noted singer, songwriter and author Graham Nash was in Cuyahoga Cty Public Library's Parma, OH branch this summer, taking a brief break from the Crosby, Stills & Nash recent summer tour.  Mr Nash spoke at the library to an energized crowd of over 400 CCPL patrons about his autobiography, Wild Tale (9780385347563, Three Rivers Press), the recent Graham Nash produced cd release, CSNY 1974 (00081227960353, Rhino Records) his rock n roll life and meeting the Queen!  For CSNY 1974 Mr Nash and record producer Joel Bernstein pulled together  the best moments from nine tour dates of the 1974 Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young's ground breaking stadium venue concert tour, often cobbling together composites, then assembled the whole deal as a three-CD set designed to replicate the mammoth three-hour shows the quartet played in 1974.  A must listen for fans of the band, classic folk-rock and rock n roll history.

Gustafer Yellowgold


If you’re not familiar with the cool kid music of Gustafer Yellowgold, do yourself a favor and watch this trailer for the sunny hipster that The New York Times described as “A cross between ‘Yellow Submarine’ and Dr. Seuss,” and Entertainment Weekly said “…The most infectious original songs. It’s like tapping into some pleasure center in the brain- both adult and kid…absurdly appealing. Grade: A.” His latest, Wisdom Tooth of Truth comes out on 9/23 on DVD+CD - 616892224648.
