About

Art Garfunkel's In Close-Up world tour, with guitarist Tab Laven and keyboardist Dave MacKay, encompasses his solo hits, Simon & Garfunkel songs, cuts from his favorite songwriters—Jimmy Webb, Randy Newman, and George Gershwin—and parts of his forthcoming autobiography. Of a recent show in Minneapolis, Twin Cities Arts said, "Garfunkel showed himself to be an artist of note, a singer whose voice can still resonate extraordinary songs and a human being reflecting on the rather unique and intense experiences that make up his life."

MORE ABOUT THE ARTIST
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 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,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” and many others—is one of the biggest selling album ever. Garfunkel’s new book, What Is It All But Luminous (Notes From An Underground Man), will be released September 26 by Alfred A. Knopf.
