An Evening with David Crosby & Friends
Legendary singer-songwriter and social justice activist David Crosby is set to perform at Vina Robles Amphitheatre on April 25. The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer was inducted as a member of both iconic folk-rock band The Byrds—with whom he first rose to stardom—and the iconic Woodstock era-defining group Crosby, Still & Nash.
David's most recent release, Lighthouse is an intimate, stripped-down set that highlights Crosby’s instantly recognizable voice, incisive songwriting, and incomparable guitar work. The palpable joy in the 9-song collection captures the iconic artist in an unexpected burst of inspiration. For Lighthouse, Crosby received an able assist from Michael League, the bandleader/bassist for Snarky Puppy who executive produced and co-wrote much of the album with Crosby. Lighthouse features a rare economy of sound, filled primarily by Crosby’s voice and guitars, and League’s bass. There’s a sparse, unvarnished quality to the tracks that allows the songs breathing room and for the full emotional weight of the lyrics to emerge, unencumbered by extraneous instrumentation.
