Winnipeg, MB: ART GARFUNKEL is back in love with being on stage, and is adding more dates to an already busy summer. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member is scheduled to perform at the Burton Cummings Theatre in Winnipeg on Saturday, September 27, 2014. Tickets go on sale Friday, June 20, 2014. The revered singer had taken time off to recover from a vocal ailment before returning to the stage this year.
“I feel like 26,” Garfunkel recently told the New Haven Register before a few Connecticut shows. “I worked to get the voice back…I have been singing since I was five; it’s my best friend. I’m married to singing and its problems.” He adds, “The voice left me and now that it’s back, I am so grateful.”
Garfunkel will bring his two-man show, with guitarist Tab Laven. His live set encompasses his solo hits, Simon and Garfunkel songs, cuts from his favorite songwriters–Jimmy Webb, Randy Newman, A.C. Jobim–parts of his new book, and Q&A.
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 original solo albums, the most recent being SOME ENCHANTED EVENING in 2007, plus a 2-CD compendium of his full body of work THE SINGER. Since then, he has been busy as a husband and father to his two sons, 23 year-old Arthur Junior and eight-year-old Beau Daniel. He is also an avid walker who has walked across Japan, the US (celebrated in the 1997 concert DVD ACROSS AMERICA) and now Europe, bearing down on Istanbul.
