ART GARFUNKEL COMING TO FRANKLIN THEATRE: Third Performance (January 29) Added Due to High Demand for Tickets


Third Performance (January 29) Added Due to High Demand for Tickets

Although it has been 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.

The Franklin Theatre is honored to welcome him for three nights in January which includes a newly added show (Wed., January 29) to accommodate a high demand for tickets.  Patrons will join Mr. Garfunkel for an evening of acoustic performance with songs, anecdotes, prose and a unique audience Q&A session.

Garfunkel earned five Grammy Awards and legions of fans as part of the legendary duo Simon & Garfunkel, which he formed with Paul Simon. The duo created a string of hits through the early 1970s, including “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” “The Boxer,” “Cecilia,” “Mrs. Robinson” and “Sound of Silence.” After they disbanded, both went on to solo careers, but were inducted as a duo into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990.

Garfunkel has been selling out auditoriums all over the world on his recent “An Evening with Art Garfunkel” tour and brings his intimate performance to Franklin for the benefit of “The Nicaragua Project,” a local nonprofit started by singer songwriter, Gene Cotton. The organization works in Nicaragua rehabbing schools and orphanages, providing educational scholarships, and other humanitarian efforts. (

Cabaret seats (nearest stage) are $200.00 and all others are $100.00 each. (80% of the ticket price is tax-deductible.)

Tickets are available at the Franklin Theatre box office, online at or by calling 615-538-2076.
