Simon and Garfunkel tribute act, The Sounds of Simon visit Cwmbran’s Congress Theatre on June 24 with their new show From The Sounds of Silence to The Rhythm of the Saints.
The two- hour show covers hits released by Simon and Garfunkel over the course of their ten years together as well as tracking the development of Paul Simon’s solo career.
Ben Bowden and Adam Ellis, who play the duo on stage, have been described by musicwriters as ‘the world’s best Simon and Garfunkel tribute’ and their full band show as ‘a musical feastfor anyone who loves the songs of Paul Simon’. They recently released their new live album, Hints and Allegations.
Adam enjoys the challenge of playing these songs. “It’s great to take a songwriter as brilliant as Paul Simon and then track his development over 30 years. The evening will show how a songwriter practises and develops his craft.”
Ben was recently featured on BBC’s The One Show, performing as Paul Simon and talking about Paul’s visit to England in 1965. It was on this trip that Paul reputedly wrote his hit, Homeward Bound. This hit, along with many others, features in the show.
