Dan Haynes and Pete Richards perform an unforgettable show celebrating the music of Simon & Garfunkel. Naming their group Bookends after the folk-rock duo’s album title, Dan and Pete recreate their ever-fresh songs. They are backed by Leos Strings, which was founded in 2008 by cellist Rachel Shakespeare at the Royal Northern College of Music.
Bookends tour extensively at prestigious venues, including the Edinburgh Festival Theatre and The Lowry, and enjoyed sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
The concert features classics such as The Sound of Silence, Mrs Robinson, Bridge Over Troubled Water and such lesser-known gems as Sparrow and Bleecker Street plus music from Simon & Garfunkel’s solo careers.
