* Scarborough Fair…Simon and Garfunkel Tribute.
Not to date myself- but Jeff Eats first saw Simon & Garfunkel live in concert, September, 1967 at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. Back then- a ticket cost $2.25. The point, Jeff Eats has been a Simon & Garfunkel fan for over 50 years…
Jeff Eats has seen-Scarborough Fair…Simon and Garfunkel Tribute starring The Guthrie Brothers and I am telling you that the Guthrie Brothers are as “close” to seeing Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel in their hey-day…as is humanly possible! Squint your eyes and you’d swear that Tom & Jerry, I-mean Simon & Garfunkel are on the stage-singing!

THE G U T H R I E B R O T H E R S’
SIMON & GARFUNKEL TRIBUTE Jeb Guthrie and Jock Guthrie
The GUTHRIE BROTHERS, knew the first time they played a Simon & Garfunkel song that they had a natural and almost spiritual connection to it. “Our voices seemed to blend effortlessly into that S & G signature sound, and the overwhelming audience reaction to our first tribute performance confirmed our feelings,” Jock says. “Since that first performance, we’ve worked to perfect our tribute to these two amazing artists.” The New York-based musicians perform this tribute with startling authenticity in an “unplugged” acoustic style. The brothers have been singing together for as long as either one of them can remember-–a major reason for the perfect blend of their harmonies.
Both men play acoustic guitar and sing. “The music that we play is truly an extension of who we are,” Jock says. “Our philosophy is to do songs that we feel directly connected to, and we can trace these connections back to shared experiences and feelings from our childhood in Green Bay, Wisconsin.” “We think this is the reason we can be so faithful to the spirit and sound of whatever period or type of music we’re playing–including our own music. We play together as one,” Jeb says. The Guthries’ original music received national attention with the release of their self-titled, debut album. The album garnered extensive airplay on both Americana and Country radio stations. About the album, Billboard magazine said, “Many stations will find the well-written, heartfelt lyrics and wonderful harmonies a welcome addition to their airwaves.” The album has been re-released and can be heard and purchased online at the iTunes Music Store and Rhapsody.
