Art Garfunkel

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.

“The Voice can still weave its magic…Garfunkel can elevate us, transform an evening. He can cast a spell.” —The Times of Israel, June 11, 2015

Art Garfunkel has also enjoyed a successful film career, published a book of poetry and released 12 solo albums, the most recent being Some Enchanted Evening, in 2007.

Garfunkel was originally revered for his Grammy-winning, chart-topping songs and albums with partner and fellow New York City native Paul Simon. Their greatest hits collection, which includes “Mrs. Robinson,” “Scarborough Fair,” “The Sound of Silence,” “The Boxer” and “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” among others, is one of the best-selling albums of all time.

The late ‘80s brought two new challenges for Garfunkel: he published Still Water, a collection of poetry in 1989 and began an amazing trek across America–on foot. But the ‘80s and ‘90s found Garfunkel doing what he does best: singing for an audience.

“Taking on the fear and vulnerability of a live show keeps you vital,” says Garfunkel, who relishes the opportunity to perform new and classic material for fans around the world. “I’m a singer trying to get away with a lucky job. I try to soothe, to lift…That’s my life.”

In his intimate show that features himself, a guitarist and a piano and keyboards player, you’ll hear poetry, stories and of course, his greatest hits.
