Sounds of Simon in Shaftesbury

THE duo Bookends, Dan Haynes and Pete Richards, make no effort to look like Simon and Garfunkel or recreate a show spectacle, but accurately capture the sounds of the American singers who laid down a soundtrack for the sixties that has lasted fifty years.

They make a welcome return to Shaftesbury Arts Centre on Friday 24th March at 8pm, singing songs that have become classics.

Returning the UK, they play two performances at The Wharf in Devizes on 20th May, and also visit the Manor Pavilion in Sidmouth on 21st,  Poole Lighthouse on 26th May, Pound Arts at Corsham on 2nd June and Wimborne Tivoli on 9th June.
