What to do in January in the winter cold and snow? How about join as at the Performing Arts Center for a Simon and Garfunkel Retrospective.
At 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 18 at the Warsaw Performing Arts Center, AJ Swearingen and Jonathan Beedle will perform this remarkable tribute to the music of Simon and Garfunkel. Warsaw PAC is proud to announce a throwback to the great folk and pop music of the 1970s and 1980s. We all need to get out and feel great during this time of year and this is just the way to do it. Whether you are experiencing this music for the first time or you are a big fan, you wont want to miss this performance.
Swearingen and Beedle have been performing this tribute for more than a decade, and their sold out shows prove the effect on their audiences is undeniable. A chance meeting at a local club in Bethlehem, Penn. in 1991 brought these two talented artists together. A brief introduction and moments later they were blending their voices together as if they had been performing together for a lifetime. Swearingen’s warm baritone and Beedle’s soaring tenor combine flawlessly to capture the essence and magic of Simon and Garfunkel’s sound in the early years in Greenwich Village.
With a quiet stage and an acoustic guitar, Swearingen and Beedle recreate the memories of the classic hits and obscure songs of Simon and Garfunkel. Discover why audiences are cheering for this duo as they capture the magic of one of the greatest music duos to ever perform.
