On October 2, 2019, for the first time, Art Garfunkel shared the stage at Carnegie Hall with his family - his wife, Kathryn Luce and their two sons, Arthur Jr., 27 and Beau Daniel, 13. The concert included solos, duets and numbers by the entire family including "Let It Be Me", "Danny Boy", "The Boxer" and "Cecilia". In addition, there was a reading of an amusing poem from Art Garfunkel's memoir, "What Is It All But Luminous" (Knopf).
Statement from Art on the passing of Eric Weissberg: "The loss of Eric Weissberg is a great loss to musicianship, held collectively dear. His wife, Juliet and son Will must know the giant stature in which we all held Eric." Eric died March 22, 2020 at the age of 80.
September 10, 2019 marked the release of the trade paperback edition of Art's acclaimed autobiography What Is It All But Luminous: Notes From An Underground Man (Vintage Books). First published in hardcover in 2017 by Alfred A. Knopf (available everywhere books are sold), the Huffington Post praised the book as “charming and poetic.” Of his very personal and unique memoir, friend James Taylor said, “Art Garfunkel has seen it all. He has surveyed it from the heights and lived it at street level. He has walked the world. A deeply thoughtful man whose voice has made an indelible mark on his time, he is a friend and a colleague for half of my life and is still a mystery. He opens his mind to us in this delightful diary. I wish you the joy of it." More detail
On The Road
For his In Close-Up tour dates, Art brings along a guitarist and keyboardist, performing Simon & Garfunkel songs, solo hits, select covers and he reads excerpts from Luminous. He recently told Nashville Scene, “I don’t look at it as a tour. I just look at it as: ‘This is what I do.’ I go out on the road and I do shows, usually on the weekend. Are they tours? They’re mini-tours. This is my life. I sing; I have a booking agent; he finds me stages; and I go all over the world and I do my shows. I love it. And you do these famous songs, you earn your pay and move on to the next town — I like this.”
