Something About Simon

Wed 22 Jun 2022 to Sun 26 Jun 2022
Assembly Festival Garden: Piccolo
Little Park Street, Coventry, CV1 2UR Show on map
Duration: 1 hour
From £13.50

In this new show, singer-songwriter Gary Edward Jones not only recites the music of one of his idols, but also tells the unique story of Paul Simon combining visuals, stage design and, of course the music.

A natural storyteller, with charisma and charm, Gary weaves together songs and stories that cross the Atlantic, from New Jersey to England's North-west. With classic ballads like The Sound of Silence, America and Kathy’s Song, to the more upbeat Wristband and The Boxer to the much-loved Bridge Over Troubled Water. The show will have you both reliving and rediscovering these great songs again.
