Simon & Garfunkel & Novo Amor

Episode 36

Aaron and Brent look at a Welsh multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter and a duo who were at the forefront of the folk-rock movement of the 1960s. Performing under a stage name that means “New Love” in Portuguese, Aaron highlights the music of Novo Amor. Meanwhile, Brent focuses on the successful, yet troubled, relationship of one of the most influential duos of all time: Simon & Garfunkel.
