Blessed with what the New York Times described as a “beautiful countertenor” voice, ART GARFUNKEL has made an indelible mark on the music world as both a solo artist and half of the unrivaled Simon & Garfunkel. Their greatest hits collection is one of the biggest selling albums ever, including “Mrs. Robinson,” “Scarborough Fair,” “The Sound Of Silence,” “The Boxer,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water” and others.
Originally revered for his Grammy-winning, chart-topping songs and albums with partner and fellow NYC native Paul Simon, Garfunkel has also enjoyed a successful film career, published a book of poetry, released 12 solo albums and written an autobiography, What Is It All But Luminous: Notes From An Underground Man.
Now, he continues his stellar solo stops with "In Close-Up" concerts. In these intimate, evening-with performances, Art, along with a guitarist and keyboardist, performs Simon & Garfunkel songs, solo hits, select covers as well as reads excerpts from Luminous. “Taking on the fear and vulnerability of a live show keeps you vital,” Garfunkel says. “I’m a singer trying to get away with a lucky job. I try to soothe, to lift. That’s my life.”
The Berklee Performance Center in Boston will host an "In Close-Up" performance on Friday, April 17, 2020.
