FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Lexington, MA – Spectacle Management is proud to present An Evening with Art Garfunkel at Cary Memorial Hall in Lexington on Friday, October 21 at 8pm. 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. Tickets are $89-$69 and go on sale on Friday, May 20 at 10am at www.caryhalllexington.com or by calling 617-531-1257. ART GARFUNKEL Art Garfunkel was originally revered for his Grammy-winning, chart-topping songs and albums with partner and fellow NYC 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 biggest selling albums ever.
After Simon & Garfunkel parted ways in 1970, Garfunkel landed several major film roles, including “Carnal Knowledge” (opposite Jack Nicholson), “Catch 22” and Nicholas Roeg’s “Bad Timing/A Sensual Obsession.” His solo debut Angel Clare spawned the top 10 hit “All I Know.” His other solo albums include Breakaway (‘75; features the hit “I Only Have Eyes For You”), Watermark(‘78; featuring “[What A] Wonderful World” with James Taylor and Paul Simon), Fate For Breakfast (‘79), Scissors Cut (‘81), The Animals’ Christmas (‘86), Lefty (‘88), Garfunkel (Greatest Hits, ‘88), Up Till Now (‘93), Across America (‘97), Songs From A Parent To A Child (‘97), Everything Waits To Be Noticed (’03), Some Enchanted Evening (’07) and The Singer (2012).
The late ‘80s brought two new challenges for Garfunkel: he published Still Water, a collection of poetry in ‘89, 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.”
Garfunkel earned his Bachelor of Arts degree at Columbia College, majoring in Art History; later he earned his Master’s Degree in Architecture at Columbia University. He lives in New York City with his wife Kim. Garfunkel is an avid reader and has chronicled every book he’s read since June 1968 on his website–-1,210 in all. www.artgarfunkel.com TICKET INFORMATION Tickets for Art Garfunkel at Cary Memorial Hall in Lexington on Friday, October 21 at 8pm are $89-$69 and go on sale Friday, May 20 at 10am at www.caryhalllexington.com or by calling 617-531-1257.
