David Crosby to Play the Kent Stage in August

Sky Trails, singer David Crosby’s third album of original material in four years, takes the Rock Hall Inductee in a new musical direction as the songs adopt a full band sound with deep, soulful grooves.

"It's a natural thing for me," says Crosby in a press release announcing an Aug. 20 tour stop at the Kent Stage in support of the album. "I've always felt more comfortable there. There's complexity, intricacy and subtleties in the music."

Sky Trails comes in the wake of 2016’s Lighthouse and 2014's Croz, Crosby's first solo album in 20 years. Though Crosby wrote many of the songs for Sky Trails as he was working on Lighthouse, the two are distinctly different projects.

"Lighthouse was conspicuously and deliberately acoustic," Crosby says. "Sky Trails was intended to be a full band record from the start."

The Kent Stage concert will mark the first of a number of events at the venue presented in conjunction with the 50th Anniversary of May 4, 1970.

A member’s ticket presale begins at 10 a.m. tomorrow. Meet and greet premium packages also go on sale at that time. Tickets go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. on Friday.
