Art Garfunkel to perform in Israel E-mail

American singer/song writer, Art Garfunkel, best known for his partnership with Paul Simon in the duo Simon & Garfunkel, is expected to perform the duo’s greatest hits during a concert in Israel at the Bloomfield Stadium in Jaffa on 10 June.

Garfunkel was born to a Jewish family in Queens, New York City in 1941. He met Paul Simon, who is also Jewish, in the sixth grade in 1953 and the two began performing as a duo four years later. In 1963, they officially became known as Simon & Garfunkel, with a debut album that kicked off the glorious career of one of the most famous and successful groups in the 1960s and in the history of music.

Simon was mostly responsible for creating the songs, while Garfunkel was the wonderful vocalist with the memorable voice from one of the duo’s greatest hits, Bridge Over Troubled Water.

Simon & Garfunkel released many other huge hits, including Mrs. Robinson, The Sound of Silence, The Boxer and 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover, which shaped an entire generation in America.
