Simon & Garfunkel: The most celebrated folk duo of the 1960s.
The unlikely twosome of childhood friends from Queens, New York, Simon & Garfunkel would go on to become the most celebrated folk duo of the 1960s. Scoring a series of hit singles and albums throughout their long and illustrious career together, the pair is renowned for their signature choirboy harmonies – a staple sound of the American folk-rock revolution. Simon & Garfunkel are best known for songs such as "The Sound of Silence" and "Bridge Over Troubled Water", while The Graduate's best-selling anthem "Mrs. Robinson" earned the pair a Grammy Award for Record of the Year in 1969. Fusing their own unique blend of folk, pop and rock styles, Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel have long delighted fans worldwide while casting a special impression on the history of popular music.
“At 19 or 20, a young man is burning to be great at something. I was.”
Happy birthday to Art Garfunkel!
