Art Gar­funkel’s voice is of­ten de­scribed as an­gelic and is known for inspiring chills in lis­ten­ers when he hits the high notes on “Bridge Over Trou­bled Wa­ter.” Be­tween 1964 and 1970, he played as one half of the folk duo Simon & Gar­funkel with his old class­mate and friend, Paul Simon, whom he’d been singing with since they were thir­teen. To­gether they re­leased five al­bums, in­clud­ing Sounds of Si­lence and Pars­ley, Sage, Rose­mary and Thyme, which be­came beloved and iconic to gen­er­a­tions of fans. Af­ter an ac­ri­mo­nious breakup, both went on to suc­cess­ful solo ca­reers; more than 40 years later, ques­tions about the rift and hurt feel­ings around it persist. Sev­eral years ago, Gar­funkel suf­fered an in­jury to his vo­cal chords, but he’s tour­ing again, his voice on the mend. He stops in Santa Fe for “An In­ti­mate Evening With Art Gar­funkel,” on Tues­day, June 16, at 7:30 p.m., at the Lensic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter (211 W. San Fran­cisco St.). He’ll play some of his solo work, as well as Simon & Gar­funkel hits, with gui­tarist Tab Leven. He will also tell sto­ries and pos­si­bly re­cite some of his prose po­ems. Call 505-988-1234 for ticket avail­abil­ity.
