Art Garfunkel is set for a brief East Coast run next month. The legendary singer will take in stops in Reading and Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania along with shows in Red Bank and Englewood, New Jersey.
Garfunkel’s concerts, which feature an even split between solo favorites and Simon & Garfunkel classics, are low-key events, with Garfunkel performing with only an acoustic guitarist and a keyboardist. Garfunkel told us that as his recording career slowed down, the road began to mean much more to him: “Stage work became more and more fun. Knockin’ them out was knockin’ me out more and more. So what I get out of it is when you put a nice voice into the microphone, and the microphone gives you the broadcasting and the echoing that resounds in the house — I have the fun of being an artist/vocalist. Y’know, I’m not a guitar player. There are so many singer-songwriters. I’m a vocalist. I shape the notes and have a lot of fun trying to be beautiful. Audiences. . . I make ’em happy.”
