More than forty years after recording “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” Art Garfunkel continues to thrill audiences with his stories, poetry, and signature vocals. Exploring folk, rock, and pop, Garfunkel’s music is melodically wistful and nostalgically soulful. Hailed by The New York Times as a “beautiful countertenor,” Garfunkel is known for his vulnerable performances and his personal connection with audiences.

In the years since Simon & Garfunkel parted ways in 1970, Garfunkel has released 12 solo albums, appeared in several films, and published a book of poetry.
