Spectacle Management is proud to present An Evening with Art Garfunkel at Cary Memorial Hall in Lexington on Friday, October 21 at 8pm.  Although it has been over 40 years since Bridge Over Troubled Water was recorded, Art Garfunkel’s image and signature vocal remain among the most instantly recognizable in popular music.  His “beautiful countertenor,” as Neil Strauss described Art’s voice in The New York Times, is clear and resonant, surely one of the finest instruments in all of popular music, and a time-honored friend to a world of listeners. Tickets go on sale on Friday, May 20 at 10am at www.caryhalllexington.com or by calling 617-531-1257.
