Art Garfunkel Biography
Perhaps best known for his work as one-half of the famous folk rock duo Simon & Garfunkel, Art
Garfunkel has been a staple in popular folk music since the early 1960s. Garfunkel was born and raised
in Queens, New York and attended Forest Hills High School in the mid-50s, where he would perform at
various school dances and events with future bandmate Paul Simon. The duo would officially form
Simon & Garfunkel in 1963 and released their debut album, Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M., via Columbia
Records in October of the following year. The group has gone through periods of turmoil and stagnancy
over its 50-year existence, but Art Garfunkel tickets remain in high demand when the singer tours the
country. After Simon & Garfunkel’s hiatus in 1970, Garfunkel would pursue an acting career and was
featured in the films Catch-22 and Carnal Knowledge. Reentering the limelight in the mid-70s, Garfunkel
would embarks on an illustrious solo career and has since released 10 studio albums, with his first four
being produced by 1979. Following Fate For Breakfast in 1979, Garfunkel entered a period of disaster
and depression after his longtime girlfriend, Laurie Bird, committed suicide. Through the early-80s, he
released poorly-reviewed Scissors Cut in 1981 and The Art Garfunkel Album in 1984, which was never
released in the U.S. In 2003, he would reunite with Simon for a successful world tour that spanned
through the following year. The duo continues to perform sporadically, but Art Garfunkel tickets sell well
when the singer embarks on solo efforts. The six-time Grammy Award winner has found notable success
since his tumultuous time in the 80s, and he has every intention of continuing a historical career that
has spanned six decades.
