Paul Simon Tickets
Paul Simon TicketsSinger/songwriter Paul Simon has been entertaining audiences since he first appeared on the music scene in the 1950s. He has been the recipient of 12 Grammy awards including a lifetime achievement award. His early work, done in collaboration with musician Art Garfunkel, includes such famous songs as "The Sound of Silence" and "Bridge Over Troubled Waters." As Simon matured as a musician, he moved from a traditional American folk sound to incorporating folk music from around the world. For example, he collaborated with the South African vocal group Ladysmith Black Mambazo for his 1986 album Graceland. Although he has put solo touring behind him, he still makes appearances at music festivals or in conjunction with other performers such as Sting and Billy Joel.
