Hailing from the northwest of England, the pair have grown up listening to Simon & Garfunkel’s music with both the composition and vocal blend having a strong influence on their respective professional careers.



After years of busy individual touring schedules both Tim and Ian have now found the time to concentrate on this venture delivering the music of Simon and Garfunkel in their own unique way that also honours the original recordings, without falling into the regular tribute act category.

There are no costumes, wigs or make up, just two great musicians producing an ambient collection of some of Simon & Garfunkel’s much-loved hits.

Their shows leave audience members astounded, with one person saying: “They’re version of ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ is a triumph. The first time I went to see them I was wondering how on earth they were going to tackle that masterpiece. The answer is quite simply brilliant.”

Tickets for the event cost £15 and are available on the Classic Singer Songwriters website.
