The Sound of Simon & Garfunkel Through The Years

Critically acclaimed as one of the greatest tribute shows anywhere in the world. Simon & Garfunkel Through The Years, appearing at Darwen Library Theatre on Friday 7th February, has toured the globe extensively receiving standing ovations and selling out theatres night after night.

Fronted by Dan Haynes and Pete Richards collectively known as Bookends, the show is a “masterpiece” (BBC Radio) which perfectly recreates the unmistakable sound of Simon & Garfunkel.

The show is a celebration of the incredible rise to fame of two boys from Queens, New York who would go on to become the most successful folk-rock duo of the 1960s, selling 38 million albums in the US alone and winning 10 awards. In 1981 they performed to over half a million people in their hometown of New York and in 1990 they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Dan and Pete who, like their idols, met in high school and began singing together from an early age, have been fronting Simon & Garfunkel Through The Years since its creation in 2011 and were championed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe as being “one of the best vocal groups touring today.”

Hear many of the hits such as The Sound of Silence, Mrs Robinson, The Boxer and the smash hit Bridge Over Troubled Water - this live concert experience is without doubt, the closest thing to Simon & Garfunkel touring the world today.
