Art Garfunkel to duet with his son at Jaffa show

When legendary singer Art Garfunkel takes the stage on Wednesday night at Bloomfield Stadium in Jaffa, he may not have old partner Paul Simon with him, but he offers the next best thing – his son Arthur Jr.

“He has a great musical gift, my boy sings better than I do and I’m pretty good. I would not bring him in the show if it was nepotism,” said the 73-year-old Garfunkel during a press conference Monday at the Dan Hotel in Tel Aviv the morning after he arrived in Israel.

Looking more like an Ivy League college professor than a rock star – with open collar, sport jacket and horn-rimmed glasses – Garfunkel said that his 24-year-old son would be joining him for a couple songs at the show, in which he promises to perform a generous selection from both the Simon and Garfunkel songbook as well as from his illustrious solo career.
