Come join Art Garfunkel for an evening of acoustic performance with songs, anecdotes, prose and a unique audience Q&A session. Garfunkel earned five Grammy Awards and legions of fans as part of the legendary duo Simon & Garfunkel, which he formed with Paul Simon. The duo created a string of hits through the early 1970s, including “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” “The Boxer,” “Cecilia,” “Mrs. Robinson” and “Sound of Silence.” After they disbanded, both went on to solo careers, but were inducted as a duo into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990.
Garfunkel has been selling out auditoriums all over the world on his recent “An Evening with Art Garfunkel” tour and brings his intimate performance to the Franklin Theatre for the benefit of “The Nicaragua Project,” a local nonprofit started by singer songwriter, Gene Cotton. The organization works in Nicaragua rehabbing schools and orphanages, providing educational scholarships, and other humanitarian efforts. (www.thenicaraguaproject.com)
