Art Garfunkel

Art Garfunkel — one half of the '60s folk duo Simon & Garfunkel — is headed back to Nashville. The singer's Jan. 20 show at the Ryman Auditorium marks three years since he last performed at the famed venue.

If the show is anything like his last stop in Music City, expect a mix of classic Simon & Garfunkel material, some originals like “A Perfect Moment” and “All I Know” and maybe even a few covers by his favorite artists. Along with the setlist, you can almost guarantee a few candid anecdotes weaved throughout.

Holding out for a Simon & Garfunkel reunion? While the duo's seemingly on-and-off-again friendship may rekindle one of these days, it's not likely you'll see them share the stage, namely due to Simon's retirement from the road.

The 77-year-old singer-songwriter brought his “Homeward Bound — the Farewell Tour” to Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena in June — a stop that opened and closed with two poignant Simon & Garfunkel tracks, “America” and “The Sound of Silence.”

Garfunkel's current tour wraps up May 19 with a stop in Seattle, Washington. Tickets for his Nashville show start at $45 and can be found here.
