Closing out this year’s festival is fearless folk rock legend David Crosby. In his unparalleled six-decade career, the native Californian has created songs that resonate as indelible cultural touchstones for more than three generations, not only as a solo artist but as a founding member of The Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash. Amid a nationwide tour, the two-time Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and his Sky Trails band pay a visit to the Bandshell to share the music of a stunning creative renaissance. Opening the evening is Tony-winning singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell, whose folk opera Hadestown received the coveted Best New Musical award this year. Whether she is on a dark exploration of American manhood or mining old English and Scottish ballads, the charismatic performer has built a vast and personal mythology.
“He's still gifted with that voice that made him the envy of every singer around Laurel Canyon in the 1960s.”– Billboard
“Ms. Mitchell's songs address contemporary angst with uncanny vision... a formidable songwriting talent.”– New York Times
