Last week we were lucky enough to attend 'Feelin Groovy: A Story of Simon and Garfunkel'. This tribute show was put together by good mates and great musicians, Harry Baulderstone and Marcus Ryan. Having already established themselves as individual solo artists, the pair recently set out to do justice to one of their all time favourite artists , Simon and Garfunkel.
In the intimate setting of La Petite Grande, located in the heart of Gluttony, Baulderstone and Ryan portrayed the two legends of acoustic folk music in a journey beginning in the groups 1960's works to their more recent music. Playing songs such as Sounds of Silence, I Am a Rock, Cecilia, America and Homeward Bound, the professionalism of the boys and accuracy of each cover was unbelievable. Throughout the show Harry briefly migrated to the keyboard, while Marcus demonstrated his skills on the melodica.
With humble and humorous stage banter, by the end of the show, the 100+ crowd were singing along and clapping as the pair ended a dramatic set. Both musicians are also members of the pop rock group Throwing Flowers, a setting where their talents and energy also shine. While this run of 'Feeling Groovy' shows are all but finished, we can't wait to see what these two have in store for the future!
