(NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ) -- State Theatre New Jersey presents Grammy® Award-winning singer Art Garfunkel on Friday, March 15 at 8:00pm. Garfunkel will perform hits like “Sound of Silence,” “Scarborough Fair,” and “Homeward Bound.” Tickets range from $35-$85.
Blessed with what the New York Times described as a “beautiful countertenor,” singer 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 The Singer in 2012. In late 2017, he released an autobiography, What Is It All But Luminous: Notes from an Underground Man (Alfred A. Knopf).
Garfunkel was originally regarded for his Grammy®-winning songs and albums with partner and fellow NYC native Paul Simon. Their greatest hits collection, which includes “Mrs. Robinson,” “Scarborough Fair,” “The Sound Of Silence,” “The Boxer,” and “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” among others, is one of the biggest selling albums ever.
After Simon & Garfunkel parted ways in 1970, Garfunkel landed several major film roles, including Carnal Knowledge, Catch 22, and Nicholas Roeg’s Bad Timing/A Sensual Obsession. His solo debut Angel Clare spawned the Top 10 hit “All I Know.” His other solo albums include Breakaway (‘75; features the hit “I Only Have Eyes For You”), Watermark (‘78; featuring “[What A] Wonderful World” with James Taylor and Paul Simon), Fate for Breakfast (‘79), Scissors Cut (‘81), The Animals’ Christmas (‘86),Lefty (‘88), Garfunkel (greatest hits, ‘88), Up Till Now (‘93), Across America (‘97), Songs From a Parent to a Child (‘97), Everything Waits To Be Noticed (’03), Some Enchanted Evening (’07), and The Singer (2012).
Garfunkel earned his Bachelor of Arts degree at Columbia College, majoring in Art History; later he earned his Master’s degree in Architecture at Columbia University. He lives in New York City with his wife Kim. Garfunkel is an avid reader and has chronicled every book he’s read since June 1968 on his website, there are 1,246 in all.
