Famed New York DJ Pete Fornatale once wrote that Woodstock wasn’t just a coming out for Crosby, Stills & Nash — it was a coronation of them as the kings of folk-rock. From Stephen Stills’ angst-ridden epic “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes” (written for Judy Collins) to David Crosby’s stark warning “Wooden Ships” to Graham Nash’s keen social commentary “Teach Your Children,” the famed trio summed up the ’60s in spectacular harmony that set the standard for a generation to come.
Together with songstress Joni Mitchell (with whom they were linked musically and in Graham’s case, romantically), they represented the culmination of what the Woodstock era had to offer in terms of songwriting and musicianship.
Gathering Time’s tribute runs the arc of their career heydays, from their days with the Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, and the Hollies through the 1970s, and Joni’s career from ’60s songwriter to ’70s icon.
