A tribute to Simon & Garfunkel
Performed by Marcato (aka Ben van Zyl & Pieter Smit)
This wonderfully entertaining tribute features the iconic music of the world’s greatest duo.
Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel grew up in Queens, New York in the 1960s and dominated the international music scene for the next 50 years. Renowned for their poetic song writing about inner city life, their gentle melodic harmonies and the recurring tensions in their more than 50 year friendship, the duo are responsible for some of the most recognizable music of the 20th century. “Bridge Over Troubled Water”, “The Boxer”, “The Sounds of Silence” & “Homeward Bound”, are all classic Simon & Garfunkel songs that defined the character of classic Folk Rock music, and they can all be heard in this show.
The talented Ben van Zyl and Pieter Smit (also known as Marcato), are the musical force whose classic interpretation of the definitive tunes manage to breathe life into these old familiar favorites! such as “America”, “The 59th Street Bridge Song” and “Mrs Robinson”.
The show is written and directed by Richard H Nosworthy and produced by Mel Botes, the acclaimed force that brought you the celebrated Pink Floyd tribute show; Crazy Diamond.
