The show, titled, “Simon and Garfunkel: Through the Years” Live in Concert, is authorized by Simon and Garfunkel to help bring their music to the public that grew up with such songs as “Mrs. Robinson,” “Scarborough Fair,” “Homeward Bound,” “The Boxer”–and so many more.
“Just like Simon and Garfunkel during their early years, we will bringing the Bookends to an intimate concert setting,” Jordan said. The Colebrook Country Club will be the setting for the show set for 7 p.m., Wednesday, April 5.
Simply put, Bookends perform the most authentic sounding tribute to the unforgettable music of Simon and Garfunkel. The duo is comprised of Dan Haynes and Pete Richards. Based in England, Bookends have toured extensively with their concerts being described as “simply breathtaking.” Performing the songs in a truly captivating way, their delicate recreation of the unmistakable sound of the American folk-rock duo is something of a masterpiece and has taken Bookends to prestigious venues.
“One of the greatest tribute shows anywhere in the world,” enthused Stuart Cameron, BBC and ITV Broadcaster.
All the hits, from “The Sound of Silence” to the unforgettable “Bridge Over Troubled Water,’” are performed as Haynes and Richards share fascinating information about Paul and Art. It’s “a masterpiece,” states BBC Radio.
