Art Garfunkel in Conversation with Scott Simon
- September 29, 2017
The singer and author of What Is It All But Luminous comes to DC on Mon., Oct. 2nd, at 7PM.
With Paul Simon, Art Garfunkel performed as Simon & Garfunkel from 1963 to 1970. The duo won six Grammy awards, the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, and were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1990. That's the heart of the story, but there's a lot more to it. In What Is It All but Luminous, Garfunkel talks about growing up in Queens in the 1940s and '50s, recalls his early interest in music, his schooldays with Simon, and their first collaborations, while still in junior high. Their first recording hit #40 on the national charts, and Garfunkel was in the public eye from the age of sixteen. He discusses what made his partnership with Simon so special, why it couldn't last, and he talks about his life after the break-up, both the successful solo career and his life as a husband and father.
Garfunkel will be in conversation with Scott Simon, host of NPR’s Weekend Edition Saturday and a correspondent on CBS Sunday Morning.
