Hailing from England, the Howmet Playhouse is pleased to welcome Bookends on their first US tour, Tuesday, April 18 at 7:30pm! Made up of Dan Haynes & Pete Richards, Bookends have toured extensively performing consecutive sell-out runs at the 2014, 2015, and 2016 Edinburgh Fringe Festivals, and appearing at prestigious venues such as the Edinburgh Festival Theatre, The Lowry, and the breathtaking Minack Theatre in Penzance. Performing the songs in a truly captivating way, against a backdrop of images and video footage, their delicate recreation of the unmistakable sound of the American folk-rock duo is something of a masterpiece.
“One of the greatest tribute shows anywhere in the world” Stuart Cameron, BBC and ITV Broadcaster
The concert features many of the classics such as The Sound of Silence, Mrs Robinson, The Boxer and Bookends’ own beautiful rendition of the unforgettable Bridge Over Troubled Water. With early folk gems such as the haunting Sparrow, the wonderfully poetic Bleecker Street and with the addition of music from Simon & Garfunkel’s solo careers, the concert is must see for any music lover.
Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door. For more information, call (231) 894-4048.
