This concert is a celebration and homage to Simon & Garfunkel by our very own celebrated songwriters.
An absolute must see for Simon & Garfunkel fans!
In September 1981, the City of New York hosted a now legendary benefit concert for the people of their City - Simon & Garfunkel - the Concert in Central Park.
Now on the 40th Anniversary of the concert and release of the multi- platinum selling album, a group of acclaimed and award-winning NZ songwriters & artists will perform the music from that very special concert along with some additional selected special songs.
The exceptional songwriting genius of Paul Simon is apparent in the huge body of exquisite songs that feature throughout the concert.
America. Sound of Silence. The Boxer. April Come She Will. Bridge Over Troubled Water- are just a few of the masterpieces that feature.
The haunting, ethereal and melodic tones of Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel will be captured by Sam Scott, Luke Buda (Phoenix Foundation), Holly Arrowsmith, Age Pryor, (Fly my Pretties) and Anita Clark (Motte).
Born in the heart of the American desert, in Santa Fe, New Mexico and raised in the mountains of Southern New Zealand, Multi Award-Winning Songwriter Holly Arrowsmith is both poet and storyteller, drawing on universal themes and the boundless landscapes that raised her. A strong forerunner in New Zealand’s Folk Revivalist movement, Arrowsmith has won the hearts of music lovers close to home and abroad, touring throughout Australia and North America and sharing stages with Sixto Rodriguez, CW Stoneking, Tami Neilson, Jessica Pratt, Nadia Reid, Marlon Williams and Tiny Ruins.
In 2020 she was awarded the APRA Country Song of The Year, after receiving the Tui Award for Folk Album of the year in 2017.
Composer, producer, songwriter, instrumentalist, Age Pryor has been working in the New Zealand music industry for over 25 years. Age has been a central player in many high profile collaborative projects including Fly My Pretties, Congress of Animals, The Woolshed Sessions and the Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra. His music has appeared in numerous film, television and theatre soundtracks.
