The Songs of Paul Simon – ‘Simon & Garfunkel’ to ‘Graceland’
Paul Simon is undoubtedly one of the greatest songwriters in contemporary music. His success and variety of work — spanning 6 decades — is true testament to his genius. From his massive early success in Simon & Garfunkel, who defined the folk/rock sound to his solo endeavours in reggae, rock, contemporary genres and his ground-breaking, African-inspired album ‘Graceland’ his work is a varying palette of brilliant stylistic expression.
This celebration performance, initially inspired by Simon & Garfunkel’s legendary reunion Concert in Central Park NY, features favourites from those early years of ‘Simon & Garfunkel’ as well as highlights of Simon’s solo efforts, culminating in selections from his landmark Graceland Album.
‘Shelley & Robertson’ with their live band, consider it a privilege to perform the ‘Songs of Paul Simon’.
“Every song is so well crafted and formed, both musically and lyrically. So full of meaning and memories and always fresh….it is such a pleasure,” said half of the ‘Shelley & Robertson’ duo, Mark Shelley.
“We guarantee you will sing along, be lost in memories, relive the feelings, jive in your seat and maybe even shed a little secret tear. Paul Simon may have retired from performing, but his songs will play on forever!
