David Crosby & Graham Nash at Occupy Wall Street; Echoes of Woodstock

First came Willie Nelson, Pete Seeger, and Arlo Guthrie, and now Crosby & Nash (sans Stills). Playing yesterday at Occupy Wall Street, their short set included Military Madness, What Are Their Names, They Want It All, Teach Your Children (above), and Long Time Gone, which they sang during their heyday at Woodstock more than 40 years ago. A long time gone, indeed.

All of this provides a good excuse to post another favorite video of ours — CSN’s one-time bandmate Neil Young playing Ohio, a now canonical song from the protest movement songbook. The haunting clip was recorded live at Massey Hall in 1971, and appears on one of the finer acoustic guitar LPs.
