A wonderful hours show of stories & classic songs. Not a tribute act (because many of those great songs were duets & this is s solo show) but Gary clearly is in awe of Mr Simon. Loved his reinterpretation of the newer songs too. Brilliant guitar playing on Graceland.

WOW!! what a great singer and I loved to hear short snippets of Paul Simon's life and the background to some of his best known songs.

We went to see, something about Simon on 3rd of August, the story telling is informative and at times amusing, the musical performance outstanding, my partner and I saw 8 shows at the fringe in total over 4 days, all of them were very good, but this show was our joint favourite, if you like Paul Simon, or just like a good show with music, I would thoroughly recommend you see it.

***** Went to a preview show on 1st August, what a fab find. Gary Edward Jones speaks with a lovely soft Liverpool accent and has the sweetest singing voice. He told snippets of Paul Simon's life and sung a number of his early songs, all of my favorites as it happens. Really good guitar player, with a number of changes. A great venue for him as you are really close and it feels very personal. Finishes with a flourish, Highly recommend.

Supported by a backdrop of projections, a visual narrative accompanies this journey through the Paul Simon songbook evoking atmosphere and colouring the stories of his life.
