Although it has been over 40 years since Bridge Over Troubled Water was recorded, Art Garfunkel’s image and signature vocal remain among the most instantly recognizable in popular music. His “beautiful countertenor,” as Neil Strauss described Art’s voice in The New York Times, is clear and resonant, surely one of the finest instruments in all of popular music, and a time-honored friend to a world of listeners.
Simon & Garfunkel started performing together at the height of the folk music boom in late-1963. From 1964 to 1970 they recorded a groundbreaking string of classic albums (Wednesday Morning 3 A.M., Sounds Of Silence, Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme, The Graduate, Bookends, and Bridge Over Troubled Water) and an equally impressive body of songs, many of which became pop standards, among them; “The Sound Of Silence,” “Homeward Bound,” “I Am a Rock,” “Kathy’s Song,” “April Come She Will,” “For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her,” “At the Zoo,” “A Hazy Shade of Winter,” “America,” “Scarborough Fair/Canticle,” “Mrs. Robinson,” “The Boxer,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” “Cecilia,” “El Condor Pasa,” and “My Little Town.” The duo won 5 Grammy Awards
In 1972, Simon & Garfunkel Greatest Hits was released, remaining on the charts for 131 weeks in the US and a staggering 179 weeks in the UK. The album has since sold 14 million units – the largest selling album of all time for a duo. In 1990, Paul and Art were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
As a solo artist, Garfunkel’s success continued with hit singles including “All I Know,” “Second Avenue,” “I Only Have Eyes For You,” ‘Looking For The Right One,” “Rag Doll,” “Disney Girls,” the reunion with Paul Simon for “My Little Town,” “Bright Eyes,” “Since I Don’t Have You,” and many more favorites.
Over his career Art Garfunkel has amassed a plethora of accolades as a performer, adventurer and humanitarian. We’re certain this concert will be a special evening indeed.
