Simon and Garfunkel

All Seats $19.99
Swearingen & Kelli recreate the music, memories and magic of the most famous folk-rock
duo of our time, Simon and Garfunkel. His deep baritone blends perfectly against Kelli's
angelic vocals, which invoke a true sound in the spirit of Art Garfunkel. The duo has been
performing music together since 2010. Together and separately they have shared the stage
with Kenny Rogers, Crystal Gayle, Livingston Taylor, John McCutcheon and many more.
Two voices in perfect harmony balanced against acoustic guitars deliver a vibrant tribute to
the sound of the 1960's.
AJ Swearingen has been performing this music for twenty years with mastery of Paul
Simon's intricate guitar playing. His deep baritone blends perfectly against Kelli's angelic
vocals delivering a true tribute to the sound of the 1960's Greenwich Village, NY
The duo is on a mission to share this iconic music to new audiences around the country.
Both artists were inspired by the great singer-songwriters of the past like Paul Simon, James
Taylor, Carole King, Jim Croce and The Eagles among others. The duo has also been
performing and writing music together since 2010, debuting their first self-titled album in
2013. Folk icon Tom Rush recorded and released their song, "You're Not Here With Me" on
his last studio release.
The sophomore album, The Marrying Kind released on July 21st 2017, has been featured
on Gretsch Guitar and The Daily Country.
"Jayne Kelli finds her way to the heavenly highs of Art Garfunkel with a soaring and effortless
soprano delivery, while AJ Swearingen displays his dexterity with Simon's well-ensconced
guitar riffs." -The Capital Gazette
"Two voices in perfect harmony balanced against one acoustic guitar delivers a true tribute
to the sound of the 1960's Greenwich Village, NY coffeehouse performances"

WHAT FANS ARE SAYING
Saw Swearingen and Kelli this past weekend in Wrentham, MA. What an extraordinary treat!
Simon & Garfunkel tribute, plus some of their own material. The harmonizing was so spot on,
and the blend of their voices...as legend Emmylou Harris puts it, "the Third Voice." The guitar
playing was also flawless. I'm officially a follower!
Make the effort to see this band, and bring friends. You'll be so glad you did!!
