THE Simon and Garfunkel Story takes you on a musical journey.

Maybe you are transported back to your youth or you feel you are right back in the swinging 60s.

The show which opened in 2013, was created by writer/director, Dean Elliott, who thought it would only last three weeks but has been touring the world for five years and shows no sign of stopping.

Dean explained this is not a concert, it is a theatre show which takes you on a chronological journey through the songbook of Simon and Garfunkel.

Dean who plays Paul Simon, said: “I would say there are two things which make the show work. Firstly there is Paul Simon’s extraordinary songwriting skills and the second is the two voices.

"There is such a blend, a power to the sound and then you hear the lyrics which bring everything together.

“Many of the songs speak to people in a different way.

"Maybe Bridge over Troubled Water was a song played at their father’s funeral or the song they listened to while studying for an exam.

It can be anything but it holds a memory. One song I like is The Dangling Conversation. It deals with a couple who have been together a long time.

“They are in love but not lusting after each other.

"And you see people like that all the time. The song is very poetic and sums up this relationship.”

Dean loves taking the show on the road and going to new places, new towns and theatres.

The Simon and Garfunkel Story has performed in 25 different countries around the world and has been seen by more than a quarter of a million people.

You can see it all a bit closer to home as it will be at The Brewhouse Theatre at 7.30pm on July 8.
