“Simon and Garfunkel: Live in Central Park [Revisited]” is a re-creation of their iconic 1981 reunion concert, featuring award-winning recording artists Lee Lessack and Johnny Rodgers. Lessack and Rodgers will perform all the masterpieces heard on the night that half a million people gathered in Central Park to witness musical history. The duo re-visits the exact set list, a repertoire of lyrical masterpieces that includes “Mrs. Robinson,” “ Scarborough Fair,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” “The Sound of Silence,” and many more.
The union of New York City natives Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel produced some of the most memorable sounds of the 1960s, owing to the powerful combination of Simon’s songwriting and their dulcet harmonies.After famously calling it quits by 1970, they rose to the occasion when they were asked by the City of New York to raise funds for the badly needed renovation of Central Park. The resulting 1981 concert is legendary, and was documented by HBO, and later a best-selling live album.
