David Crosby will perform at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center’s Castle Theater on Saturday, July 9, 2016.
Tickets go on sale to the public Saturday, June 4.
The legendary singer-songwriter and social justice activist is a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, inducted as a member of both the iconic folk-rock band, The Byrds—with whom he first rose to stardom—and the quitessential Woodstock era-defining group, Crosby, Stills & Nash.
Crosby formed The Byrds with Roger McGuinn, Chris Hillman, Gene Clark and Michael Clarke, winning widespread recognition. The Byrds’ signature electric folk-rock was driven by hits including Eight Miles High and Turn! Turn! Turn!
The group influenced countless musicians to come.
Crosby left The Byrds in 1967 to embark on a lifelong collaboration with Graham Nash and Stephen Stills. Renowned for vocal harmonies, stellar musicianship and timeless songs, Crosby, Stills & Nash (CSN) have been called “the voice of a generation” and won a Grammy award for best new artist in 1969.
The trio’s self-titled debut album introduced classics including the Crosby-penned tracks, Guinnevere and Wooden Ships—today, it is included on Rolling Stone’s list of the “500 Greatest Albums of All Time.”
Crosby continues to tour and record with CSN, as well as with Crosby, Stills Nash & Young, and as a duo with Graham Nash.
Crosby is also the author of three books that underscore his commitment to social activism, and his belief that artists and musicians are potent agents for change.
The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are $51, $56, $61 and $66 (plus applicable fees).
One dollar from each ticket sold will be donated to Crosby’s nonprofit organization, The Guacamole Fund, which supports environmental/social change as well as cultural and service organizations by facilitating, organizing and producing benefit concerts, rallies, special ticket sales, receptions and media campaigns.
