Swearingen and Kelli's Tribute to
Simon and Garfunkel
Sat, Oct 12 at 7:30 PM
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 coffeehouse performances.

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"

"Swearingen is a fine acoustic guitarist. He articulated beautifully the haunting, singsong accompaniment to "Scarborough Fair." - The Buffalo News, 2015 (Swearingen's performance with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra)

* Career highlights include Swearingen & Kelli performing "The Boxer" and other '70s hits with The Dayton Philharmonic, The Edmonton Symphony and THIS summer with the Cleveland Orchestra!

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!!
