Bookends: The Simon & Garfunkel Anthology
Saturday 1st November. Tickets only £14 (£12 concession)
From the hits to the obscure, Bookends perform as no other Simon and Garfunkel act can; with just a single guitar to back their mesmerising harmonies. ‘Simon and Garfunkel - The Anthology’ features songs which span the entire career of the duo. With all the major hits such as Mrs. Robinson and The Boxer, folk gems such as Bleecker Street and Blessed and obscure unreleased songs such as Red Rubber Ball. The show contains something for every Simon and Garfunkel fan and with each show differing in its repertoire, it can be watched time and time again.
“Any Simon and Garfunkel fan should go and see this show” BBC Radio, Devon
Bookends perform these songs in a truly captivating way. Their delicate recreation of the unmistakable sound of the American folk-rock duo has been described by many as truly spellbinding. The songs are performed just as Simon and Garfunkel did throughout their recording career, one acoustic guitar and two delicate yet powerful harmonies which blend together to recreate the unforgettable live sound.
“Closing your eyes that could really be Simon and Garfunkel” BBC Radio, Nottingham
