Art Garfunkel takes the stage at the Lensic; The Mil-Tones Brass Band jams at St. John’s College, guitarist Roberto Capocchi performs at Gig; and Der Ring des Nibelungen plays in HD at The Screen
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.
