Originally revered for his Grammy-winning, chart-topping songs and albums with partner and fellow NYC native Paul Simon, Garfunkel has also enjoyed a successful film career, published a book of poetry, released 12 solo albums and written an autobiography, What Is It All But Luminous:  Notes From An Underground Man.
Blessed with what the New York Times described as a “beautiful countertenor”  voice, Garfunkel has made an indelible mark on the music world as both a solo artist and half of the unrivaled Simon & Garfunkel.  Their greatest hits collection is one of the biggest selling albums ever, including “Mrs. Robinson,” “Scarborough Fair,” “The Sound Of Silence,” “The Boxer,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water” and others.
Garfunkel's "In Close-Up" solo tour delivers and delights fans with an intimate, "evening-with" performances.  Art, along with a guitarist and keyboardist, performs Simon & Garfunkel songs, solo hits, select covers as well as reads excerpts from Luminous.  “Taking on the fear and vulnerability of a live show keeps you vital,” Garfunkel says.  “I’m a singer trying to get away with a lucky job.  I try to soothe, to lift.  That’s my life.”
