One of the most iconic folk-rock duos are paid tribute in Live in Central Park [Revisited]: Simon and Garfunkel. Award-winning artists Lee Lessack and Johnny Rodgers recreate that unforgettable concert on Sunday, March 25, 2018 at 3 p.m.

It became the seventh largest concert in America's history with over 500,000 audience members in attendance. Performers Lee Lessack and Johnny Rodgers recreate that historic performance.
