Art Garfunkel has one of the most unmistakable voices in all of music, but the singer hasn’t been able to share it with the world since being diagnosed with vocal cord paresis in 2010. Now, it seems that Garfunkel’s years of silence are coming to an end: Garfunkel has planned a four-week American tour starting on January 29th in Franklin, Tennessee.
“The voice is back,” Garfunkel said in a statement issued to the press. “I’m in flight again. I believe I have grown through adversity.”
Garfunkel’s first live performances in years actually came in 2013 when he played a low-key show at Cleveland’s Hanna Theater in December 13th. At the time of his diagnosis, Garfunkel was planning a summer tour with Paul Simon following a short tour of Australia in 2009. No word has yet come as to whether Garfunkel plans to get back together with Simon again.
