Greater Boston Stage Company is welcoming concerts back to their stage with Scarborough Fair: A Simon & Garfunkel Experience featuring The Guthrie Brothers. Join them Saturday, August 21 at 3pm or 8pm (or both!) as Jeb and Jock blend their rich voices together to weave an enjoyable and memorable tapestry through songs, stories, and trivia that will leave audience members smiling and singing along. Come hear your favorite Simon & Garfunkel tunes including "Sound of Silence," "I am a Rock," and - of course - "Scarborough Fair."

"Since we were little kids, we brothers have been playing and singing together in one way or another. We share just about everything, and a lot of that everything is music. We knew the first time we played a Simon and Garfunkel song that our voices blended effortlessly into that S & G Signature Sound; and the overwhelming audience reaction to our performances confirmed our feelings," say Jeb and Jock Guthrie.

Performances are Saturday, August 21, 2021 at 3:00PM and 8:00PM.
