Two music legends will be visiting the Keswick Theatre this week for once-in-a-lifetime shows.
This Thursday, December 1st, 60’s countercultural icon Donovan celebrates the 50th anniversary of his number one hit single “Sunshine Superman.” The single was originally featured on his landmark album of the same name. Donovan played a very influential role in the folk rock scene by incorporating Eastern elements and psychedelic sounds, as well as creating introspective and profound lyrics. His canon of music truly changed the world. He doesn’t tour often these days, so see him while you still can!
Then on Sunday, December 4th, another folk legend, Art Garfunkel, takes the Keswick stage. Garfunkel first became nationally known as one half of the iconic duo Simon & Garfunkel. His countertenor voice, displayed beautifully in S&G songs like “Bridge Over Troubled Water” and “For Emily, Wherever I May Find Her,” is unlike any other in popular music.
After S&G disbanded in 1970, Garfunkel produced a fruitful solo career and has released twelve solo albums. Sunday’s show will feature a rare, intimate experience between Garfunkel and the audience. Expect to hear a wide range of material spanning his 50+ year career.
The Keswick Theatre is located right outside of Northwest Philly in Glenside, PA. It first opened in 1928 and has enjoyed a variety of uses in its time, including as a cinemascope film house in the 50’s and 60’s. Today the theatre venue is known for its state-of-the-art acoustics and legendary performers. Visit the Keswick’s website to learn more and purchase tickets for both shows.
