Legendary singer ART GARFUNKEL is having an exciting 2015, and is looking forward to an even bigger 2016. So far this year he has already performed critically acclaimed shows in Israel, Korea, Ireland, Holland, Belgium, France, Germany and Denmark, as well as over nearly 30 shows in the U.S. This past June, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member and Diamond-selling singer was invited to Tel Aviv, Israel, where he packed the 10,000-capacity Bloomfield Stadium and in October, he sold out New York City’s famed Carnegie Hall.
ART GARFUNKEL’s tour, with guitarist Tab Laven, encompasses his solo hits, Simon & Garfunkel songs, cuts from his favorite songwriters–Jimmy Webb, Randy Newman, A.C. Jobim and Paul Simon—and parts of his forthcoming autobiography. GARFUNKEL is very much enjoying his time on the road, saying “ I do a 90-minute show, where I mix songs and read poetic bits from my autobiography. I write about my life in show business, my woman, crossing the U.S. and Europe on foot, the mystery of it all.The act of reading these things, and the inflections and pauses, seems to me like singing. You learn to phrase with poignancy.” You can check out a wide-ranging, five-part interview with Forbes.com here.
Blessed with what the New York Times described as a “ beautiful countertenor,” singer ART GARFUNKEL has made an indelible mark on the music world as both a solo artist and half of the unrivaled Simon & Garfunkel. He has also enjoyed a successful film career, published a book of prose poems and released 12 original solo albums, the most recent being SOME ENCHANTED EVENING in 2007. Then, in 2012, he most proudly released his life’s body of work, a 2-CD compendium, THE SINGER. Art and his beautiful wife, actress Kathryn Luce Garfunkel, have two sons, 24 year-old Arthur Junior–a magnificent singer in his own right–and nine-year-old Beau Daniel.
