Skyville Live Brings Artists Together To Celebrate Catalog Of Graham Nash

Skyville Live’s Sept. 15 show featuring Graham Nash and special guests Ricky Skaggs, Lee Ann Womack, The Milk Carton Kids, The Secret Sisters and River Whyless produced some incredible moments during the evening taping.

“Graham Nash is synonymous with harmony singing. We learned how to blend our voices by listening to his records.  To be thought of and invited to sing with him, to combine our three voices, is the thrill of a lifetime,” said Joey Ryan of The Milk Carton Kids about the special evening.

The night kicked off with Nash performing “Bus Stop” which lead directly into “Immigration Man.” River Whyless took a turn on “Military Madness” and then performed “I Used To Be King” with Nash for the first of several of the night’s collaborations. The Secret Sisters put their spin on “Wasted On The Way” with Nash and “Hey You” accompanied by Ricky Skaggs, before Nash returned to the stage for “Myself At Last.” The Milk Carton Kids joined him to sing “So Sad,” and then performed “Just A Song Before I Go” on their own before being joined by Nash and Skaggs on “Marrakesh Express.”

The evening also included Ricky Skaggs performing “Angel On My Mind,” Lee Ann Womack, Graham and Skaggs joining in on “Our House” with the audience singing along, and a grand finale featuring Graham Nash and all performers singing “Chicago” and “Teach Your Children Well.”

“What an absolute pleasure it has been hanging with these incredible musicians…. and as an added bonus it’s my music… rarely have I ever seen my songs being done by other musicians and it was completely eye opening for me… what a compliment,” said Nash about the experience.
