Summer Picnic Concert
A Summer Picnic Concert in the garden of Ingatestone Hall. Bring your own picnic chairs or rugs, and picnic hamper with food and drinks and sit back and enjoy The Paul Simon Story, a theatre style show with the story and songs of Paul Simon of Simon & Garfunkel performed by 5-piece band Shades of Simon.
The band will be Shades of Simon, a refreshingly new 5-piece band presenting a full 2 hour theatre style show in tribute to Paul Simon as one of the best songwriters and performers of his generation. With an engaging narration, exceptional musicianship and authentic renditions of the best of his songs from Simon & Garfunkel through to Graceland, this is a show that appeals to all generations...
The performance will include early Simon & Garfunkel hits that have endured the test of time like The Sound of Silence, Mrs Robinson and Bridge Over Troubled Water, followed by a selection from his early solo catalogue including the classic Still Crazy After All These Years, before ending with the infectious South African rhythms of Paul Simon’s Graceland tour in the 80’s and his biggest solo success,You Can Call Me Al.
The show will start at 7:00pm and be performed on the terrace against the backdrop of the house, with the picnic area occupying the adjacent lawns of the main garden. This will be a fairly small intimate picnic concert with numbers limited to 160. Please bring your own picnic chairs or rugs, and picnic hamper with food and drinks
Gates open 6:00pm. Free car park.
