Paul Simon

When: Wed., June 7, 8 p.m. 2017

It's been sixty years since a teenage Paul Simon released his first record with a classmate by the name of Art Garfunkel: a two-song single featuring "Hey Schoolgirl" backed with "Dancin' Wild." It's hard to imagine what kind of career the two were imagining for themselves at that point, but in the following decades, Simon & Garfunkel became a permanent thread in the story of the counterculture movement of the sixties. The duo split in 1970, but Simon has continued to enjoy a steady and fruitful career dotted with hit records and honors ranging from a dozen Grammys to Kennedy Center Honors and the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize. Simon's now in his mid-seventies, but his inimitable voice, though its youthful smoothness has coarsened, remains strong. —Allison Hussey
