Prepare to fall in love again with the music of Simon and Garfunkel! The Guthrie Brothers, Jeb and Jock will bring you that opportunity on Tuesday, April 24, at the Delta Performing Arts Center, 822 Grand Avenue at 7:30 p.m. This wonderfully authentic rendition of Simon and Garfunkel songs is made available under the auspices of the Delta-Montrose Community Concert Association.
From their first startlingly authentic rendition of "Sound of Silence," to their playful version of Cecilia, Jeb and Jock Guthrie will have every audience member smiling ... and singing along.
Through songs, stories, trivia and humor, they pay homage to the music of Simon and Garfunkel and playfully engage the audience along the way. The show highlights the brothers' deep spiritual connection to this music, and to the 60s, the time period that made it all happen.
The Guthries' original music received national attention with the release of their self-titled album. The album garnered extensive airplay on both Americana and country radio stations. About the album, Billboard magazine said, "Many stations will find the well-written heartfelt lyrics and wonderful harmonies a welcome addition to their airwaves." The album has been re-released and is available online at the iTunes Music Store, Spotify and Rhapsody.
Jeb and Jock perform this tribute show with startling authenticity in an "unplugged" acoustic style. The brothers have been singing together for as long as either one of them can remember -- a major reason for the perfect blend of their harmonies. Both play acoustic guitar and sing, and add a bit of percussion and bass from time to time.
If a 2018-2019 season ticket is purchased at this concert, the concert is free. Single admission prices are $20/adult, $5/student. Season tickets are $45/adult, $15/student; $90/family. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. to purchase tickets.
