Iconic singer and songwriter Graham Nash is the subject of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame‘s latest exhibit. Graham Nash: Touching the Flame, which opens on Oct. 17, explores the two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee’s music through an interactive experience.
According to a press release, the exhibit “explores how rock and roll has shaped the world and inspired some of history’s most powerful figures.” Nash himself narrates the interactive exhibition that shines a light on his influences, highs and lows of his career and the impact his music has had on the world.
Some of the highlights include photographs taken by Nash, test pressings of Beatles records including “Love Me Do, “Please Please Me” and “Fool on the Hill,” the earliest handwritten lyrics to “Our House,” a Gibson SG played by Duane Allman, the jeans and belt Nash wore when Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young performed at Woodstock, some photographs taken by Buddy Holly and more.
Fans will also get a chance to sing with Nash in an interactive game, where the singer himself guides and critiques people who attempt to harmonize with the icon. Visitors will be able to email themselves a keepsake of their duet with Nash.
In a video clip teasing the exhibit, Nash states, “What I would like you to get out of this exhibit, is to know, no matter who you are, if you want to open your heart to be able to express yourself, do it with energy, do it with passion.” Watch the video in the player above.
