“BE YOURSELF” GRAHAM NASH 2010 TRIBUTE ADVANCE EPK #2 promo from (((folkYEAH!))) on Vimeo.

Grass Roots Record Co. and (((folkYEAH!))) have gathered an amazing collection of indie luminaries for Be Yourself: A Tribute To Graham Nash’s Songs For Beginners, out May 25th on CD and limited edition LP. Songs for Beginners was Nash’s first solo album, originally released in 1971 during a break for CSN, and spawning the Top 40 hit “Chicago,” which became a CSN staple.


Artists reinterpreting songs on Be Yourself include Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Robin Pecknold (of Fleet Foxes), Brendan Benson, Vetiver, Alela Diane, Sleepy Sun, Mariee Sioux & Greg Weeks (from Espers), Port O’Brien with Papercuts, The Moore Brothers and Graham Nash’s daughter, Nile Nash.

That’s a pretty amazing collection of folks as it stands, but the LP will also be accompanied by a 7″ of additional covers from Tyson Vogel (of Two Gallants), Johnathan Rice, Jonathan Wilson, Bart Davenport and Citay. Pre-orders are available now.
