Almost definitely the greatest violinist ever to hail from Tashkent, Uzbekistan, Nadir Khashimov is a rising star on the international music scene, earning fans and great reviews with his passionate and technically brilliant playing. Khashimov, who plays a Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume violin made in 1828, is only 23 years old, but he's already appeared as a soloist with orchestras throughout the world, including the Philadelphia Orchestra, National Orchestra of Russia, Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra and the London Symphony Orchestra. He's performed at Carnegie Hall, and won top prizes at violin competitions across Europe and beyond. When he's not touring the globe and playing before audiences of thousands, Khashimov studies at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, looking to further perfect his miraculous technique.

I really didn't care for it. They did many of the Simon and Garfunkel songs and that was the good part of it. They didn't really sound like Simon and Garfunkel and, to their benefit, did not claim to do so. It was a tribute to them.
It got better near the end. If it hadn't been for my friend, I would have left during intermission.
This is a live music tribute to Simon and Garfunkel, fronted by oldies tribute artists Mark W. Curran and Tom Haney. Their all-new show features a live backing
band and all the great hits of Simon and Garfunkel.
Although this is not a look-alike or impersonator show, it is a loving and passionate tribute that stays true to the original arrangements and trademark harmonies of
Simon and Garfunkel, all backed by a smokin' hot band! All the memorable hits are here, "Mrs. Robinson," "The Boxer," "Sounds of Silence," "Bridge Over Troubled Water," "America," plus a retrospective of Paul Simon's solo career.
