Storied singer-songwriter David Crosby will play the Boulder Theater in May.
Crosby started out as a struggling actor, trying to make his way up the ladder in Hollywood. Instead, he started playing his music around Los Angeles. In 1960, the budding folk musician began roaming the country, playing coffeehouses and folk-music clubs.
In 1963, he formed the legendary folk-rock band the Byrds, known for songs like "Turn! Turn! Turn!" and the band's cover of Bob Dylan's "Mr. Tambourine Man."
Crosby started collaborating with Graham Nash and Stephen Stills in 1967, and they formed Crosby, Stills and Nash, which gained fame playing at the Woodstock music festival.
By 1971, Crosby was playing solo again, and has done so, on and off, ever since. He dropped his latest release, Lighthouse, in October 2016.
Crosby will play at 7 p.m. on May 7 at the Boulder Theater. Tickets go on sale Friday, February 3, and cost between $50 and $55. For more information, call 303-786-7030 or go to the Boulder Theater website.
