Art Garfunkel

It’s probably fair to say that once the folk duo Simon & Garfunkel parted ways following the release of Bridge Over Troubled Water in 1970 that Paul Simon enjoyed the higher profile solo career, topped by the Grammy award-winning Graceland in 1986. But Garfunkel had a solid solo career too, with 10 albums, some published poetry, and a bit of stage and film acting, to his credit.

And, of course, there’s been periodic reunions with his former musical partner, including a famous 1979 free show in Central Park in New York that drew over 500,000 people.

On Thursday, Sept. 25, Garfunkel will be in town to play a show at Casino Regina. Doors are at 7:15 p.m., and tickets are $60/$68. To give you a sense of what to expect, here’s video from a few years ago of him performing his 1979 solo hit “Bright Eyes”:

    Oh, oh, but Art’s playing REGINA, so who’s got the higher profile now, huh? You’re not going to see Paul sipping on soy lattes in Regina’s flourishing (not) city square plaza.

    BTW every couple of months or so I realize how dead downtown is to me now w/o the 93-year-old Novia Cafe landmark there anymore, as dead as Hillsdale is w/o Sobeys. Developers are ignorant and know nothing and only seek to line their own pockets.

  2. You know that shiny, stupid plaza in Regina? It occurs to me that it should have been on Scarth St, and then maybe it would get some proper use.
