An Evening with Art Garfunkel brings the five-time Grammy Award-winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee back to the stage. The world renowned vocalist is touring in support of his new CD, "The Singer," a 34-song, 2-CD collection available on August 28 that spans his entire body of work from the first Simon and Garfunkel album in 1964 (“Wednesday Morning, 3 AM) through 2007's great American songbook album (“Some Enchanted Evening”). It includes every #1 U.S. and U.K. solo hit, two brand new songs and Garfunkel's own personal track-by-track annotations, which appear in the booklet in his own handwriting.
Art Garfunkel was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with Paul Simon in 1990. His work with Simon earned seven Grammys, beginning in 1969 with two awards for "Mrs. Robinson" (from the movie "The Graduate") including Record of the Year and Best Contemporary Pop Performance/Duo or Group. Two years later, “Bridge Over Troubled Water” was voted Album of the Year and the title song swept Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Contemporary Song, Best Arrangement Accompanying Vocalists and Best Engineered Recording. In 1977, "Bridge Over Troubled Water" received England’s prestigious Britannia Award as the Best International Pop LP and Single of the previous 25 years. Garfunkel added another Grammy Award nomination in 1998, for his album "Songs From A Parent To A Child" for Best Children’s Album.
Garfunkel has also maintained a steady presence in film. After working with director Mike Nichols on "The Graduate" soundtrack, he followed up with featured roles in Nichols' "Catch-22" (1969) and "Carnal Knowledge" (1971), for which he received a Golden Globe nomination as Best Supporting Actor. The sophisticated contemporary artist also recently appeared in 2010's "The Rebound," a film with Catherine Zeta-Jones.
