Mark Shelley and John Robertson pay tribute to the genius of Simon and Garfunkel at The Hub in Springwood on Saturday, March 9 at 8pm.
Simon and Garfunkel - The Concert showcases over 20 hit songs that include Mrs Robinson, The Boxer, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Feelin Groovy, Me & Julio, Homeward Bound, Scarborough Fair, America and Sounds of Silence.
Simon and Garfunkel reflected and defined the mood of the 60s with their close vocal harmonies and stirring songs penned by Paul Simon. Their songs, harmony and message defined the term ‘folk rock’ and reflected the mood and social revolution of the era.
With record sales in excess of 70 million and 10 Grammy awards, they are arguably one of the greatest vocal duos of all time.
Simon and Garfunkel’s music remains timeless, etched in the memories of those they touched at the time and the generations since who have discovered their songs. Their at times rocky personal relationship was seemingly at odds with their inspired musical partnership.
Shelley and Robertson bring to the concert over two decades as one of Australia’s top duos. Their credits include sold out festival and theatres (Willie and Roy – The Legends), performing with the Australian Opera Company, cruises, jingles, TV and countless venues.
With a genuine love of these songs and with a stunning backing band, their harmonies, musicianship and natural humour re-create the magic, the sound and the stories of those memorable times
Simon and Garfunkel - The Concert is inspired by Simon and Garfunkel’s remarkable reunion concert in Central Park New York which was enjoyed by a live audience of over 500,000.
It’s a fun, nostalgic and story-filled performance that will touch you and transport you back to where you were, what you felt and who you were with when you first heard their music.
