    The Sounds of Simon

    8:00 pmThe Mill Arts Centre Spiceball Park Banbury Oxfordshire OX16 5QE

    The Mill Banbury present...

    As seen on BBC The One Show!

    The Sounds of Simon is a tribute to the wonderful music of Paul Simon, through the years as one half of Simon and Garfunkel, to the enduring success of his solo career.

    Come on a journey as the full band take you through the early Simon and Garfunkel albums, through the massive success of Bridge Over Troubled Water and on to the Grammy award winning success of Still Crazy After All These Years and Graceland.

    Lose yourself to nostalgia as the full band play such classics as Mrs Robinson, The Boxer, The Sounds of Silence and You Can Call Me Al, The Obvious Child, as well as all the others that have established Paul Simon as one of the most successful songwriters of all time.

    Paul and Art are played to perfection, bringing in elements of their famously fractious relationship, as well as replicating the beautiful harmonies flawlessly.

    How does a young folksinger with dreams of singing rock and roll, go from writing songs of separation and loneliness and singing them with his childhood friend, to writing and producing grammy award winning albums that embrace influences from South Africa and Brazil? This show aims to find out, taking you on a journey across time and continent, sampling some of the finest music along the way.

    With video clips, stories, and memories from the last 50+ years, this is a wonderful show filled with excellent music, nostalgia, and a genuine love for some great musicians.

    This is the UK’s longest running tribute to Paul Simon. Come and see why!
