Hello Bungay, my old friend
The nation’s favourite Simon and Garfunkel Tribute will appear at The Fisher Theatre in Bungay on the 19th May with their stripped down Old Friends Duo show.
The Sounds of Simon normally do large theatres with their full band show, but on the 19th May 2018 just two of them will be entertaining audiences in the intimate surroundings of The Fisher Theatre in Bungay.
The show is a celebration of the early days of Simon and Garfunkel, and evokes the early New Yorkcoffee house shows the duo played back in the 60s.
“This is a chance to hear the songs as the originally sounded,” says Adam Ellis, who plays Art in the show. “Just two voices and one guitar in a hushed room.”
The show covers all the early classics, from The Sounds of Simon and Homeward Bound to seldom heard classics like A Poem on the Underground Wall and A Most Peculiar Man.
Ben Bowden, who plays Paul, was recently featured on BBC’s The One Show, performing as Paul Simon and talking about Paul’s visit to England in 1965.
It was on this trip that Paul reputedly wrote his hit, Homeward Bound.
The show is accompanied by archive video footage from the 60s, and tells the story of Simon and
Garfunkel and their early days together.
This is a return to the area for the band. “We played in the town a few years ago, so it will be good to bring the duo show back to the venue,” says Ben.
The pair are playing a range of dates throughout the year, both as a duo and with their full band show.
Tickets are £13/11 conc and are available from the venue on 01986 897130 or online from
