Mitchell, Nash Romance Began In Ottawa


One of the greatest love affairs in pop music history was that of Canadian folksinger Joni Mitchell and the Hollies Graham Nash.

And they met, wait for it, in Ottawa in 1968:

In 1968, the two iconic musicians first crossed paths when The Hollies performed in Ottawa, Canada. After the show, they got acquainted, and Mitchell played some of her material to Nash, immediately capturing his attention. He once described the evening as “magical on so many different levels” and revealed she treated him to 15 pieces from her songbook.

A whirlwind romance ensued, which would last two years, and in this time, they’d both hit their stride professionally. However, by 1970, their relationship had become intolerable for Mitchell, who moved out of their shared residence and cuttingly informed Nash of her decision via a telegram.

Nash really never got over the breakup.
