A SIMON AND GARFUNKEL TRIBUTE FEATURING WHITHERWARD
SUNDAY, APR 7 @ 5PM
$20 ADVANCE / $25 AT DOOR
IN ADDITION TO THIS AMAZING PERFORMANCE, THE BAND WHITERWARD IS INVITING YOU TO STAY AFTER THE PERFORMANCE FOR A CD LISTEN EVENT OF THEIR NEW RELEASE “HUMAN ALBUM”. THIS IS FREEFOR THOSE ATTENDING SCAROROUGH BUT WILL REQUIRE A TICKET. SEE TICKET LINK FOR OPTION. YOUR ATTENDANCE INCLUDES A COPY OF THEIR NEW CD.
Scarborough is the latest effort between indie-folk duo Whitherward’s harmony driven lead singers, Ashley E. Norton and Edward A. Williams. After two hard years on the road and 4 original EP releases, the pair decided to venture off into a project that feeds their souls with songs from one of their biggest inspirations – Simon & Garfunkel. It began by accident – slowly turning most of their set list into songs by the band. The audience response to these covers was so overwhelming that the progression into a complete transformation was natural. Now, their shows will have two personalities. Sometimes you will be able to watch them perform their original music at venues across the country as Whitherward. Other times they will play the roles of Paul Simon & Art Garfunkel as Scarborough. Here we celebrate the biggest folk duo of the century – where poetry and harmony unite.
Indie-folk trio with Phoenix, Nashville and St. Luis roots, living on a full-time tour. Singer-songwriters Edward Williams and Ashley Norton threw their belongings into storage three years ago and never looked back. Now with violinist Stephanie Groot, they are just returning from their first UK run. Comparable to a modern-day Simon & Garfunkel or The Civil Wars and full of harmony and intricate songwriting. They’re now on their 5th album release along with a plethora of unique music videos.
