Intimate but Great: My Graham Nash Concert Review

I saw another legend in concert.
Graham Nash, as in the Nash in Crosby, Stills, and Nash (and Young), and before that, The Hollies.
I saw him at the Lexington Opera House in Lexington, Kentucky.
Very intimate show, with a lot of great songs and stories.
It was just Graham on vocals, guitar, keyboards, and harmonica, and another guitarist who sang harmony with Graham.
He played one Hollies song, several CSN(Y) songs, solo songs, and two Beatles songs.
The crowd loved all of it, as did I.
Most things in life I find boring or miserable, but concerts genuinely make me happy.
This concert made me happy.
If my life could be one big concert, I would be in paradise.
I have four more concerts to go this year, and then, it’s off to next year.
I still need to see so many more, including the rest of CSNY.
Make it happen.
