Paul Simon’s Graceland Live

Don't miss this special evening on 4th November at Edinburgh Playhouse, celebrating over 30 years since Paul Simon’s album 'Graceland' was released!

Paul Simon’s Graceland Live

About Paul Simon’s Graceland Live

In 1984 Paul Simon became fascinated by a bootleg cassette of South African township music. He travelled to Johannesburg and spent two weeks recording with South African musicians. This recording session formed the basis of his seventh and most commercially successful solo album, Graceland. Featuring an eclectic mix of genres such as pop, rock, a cappella, mbaganga and zydeco, the Grammy award-winning album has since been hailed as one of the best albums of all time.

Join us for a special evening celebrating over 30 years since this ground-breaking album was released. Backed by a full live band, the show will star American Musician and viral Youtuber, Josh Turner Guitar as Paul Simon, who will be joined live on stage by the empowering and evocative voices of the UK’s unique and wonderfully talented South African Cultural Gospel Choir.

Book Tickets

 

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Paul Simon’s Graceland Live are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
