Crosby, Stills & Nash will perform a special concert, “FOR THE BENEFIT OF WOMEN: A Night of Music Supporting the Foundation for the Advancement of Midwifery and Celebrating 30 Years of the Midwives Alliance,” on Wednesday, September 26, 7:30PM at the Sunset Center in Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA (San Carlos at Ninth Ave., 93921). Billed as “An Evening with Crosby, Stills, & Nash,” the event is presented by The Guacamole Fund, and is scheduled for the night before the Midwives Alliance of North America’s (MANA) 2012 conference, running September 27-30 in Asilomar, CA. Reserved seating and special after show Golden Circle Artists Reception are available at the Sunset Center Box office (by phone 831-620-2048 or online at www.sunsetcenter.org). Tickets go on sale at 12:00 noon on Friday, August 31.
“FOR THE BENEFIT OF WOMEN” takes place during a series of California dates on Crosby, Stills & Nash’s U.S. Tour, which concludes with four nights at New York City’s Beacon Theatre in October. CSN 2012, a 25-song set presenting the group’s first live performance film in more than 20 years, was released earlier this summer. Captured in high-definition during the early portion of CSN’s 2012 world tour, the set is available worldwide from CSN Records in Blu-ray, DVD/2CD (3 discs), and Digital formats.
Speaking about the cause, Graham Nash said, “It makes me immensely proud to be able to join voices with David and Stephen in support of the Midwives. Helping to bring babies safely and securely into this world has been my daughter Nile’s dream since she was seven years old. Day after day she works to bring light and life to this planet and, in her own unique, loving way, change the world.”
More than four decades since CSN first harmonized in Laurel Canyon, and played their first-ever concert as a trio at the legendary Woodstock festival, its members continue a creative partnership that is one of the most influential and enduring in music. David Crosby, Stephen Stills, and Graham Nash have each been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame two times—once with Crosby, Stills & Nash, and a second time with The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, and The Hollies, respectively. They have also been inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, with the honor recognizing both CSN as a group, and each member as individual solo artists.
CSN’s music first became a cornerstone of rock ‘n roll with the self-titled 1969 debut LP, one of Rolling Stone’s “500 Greatest Albums of All Time.” Ever since—through changing times, various configurations, and acclaimed solo careers—Crosby, Stills & Nash have continued to tour and record as “three together.”
