  • I had the pleasure of booking Scarborough Fair for a concert as part of our 2011 Fountain Park Summer Concert Series. For eleven years, I have been booking concerts for The Van Wert County Foundation and the City of Van Wert (OH). Our venue is an outdoor park, located at the edge of downtown Van Wert. We have had crowds of up to four to five thousand for our concerts. While considering Scarborough Fair, I had some reservations about putting just two performers, Jeb and Jock, on our stage in front of a few thousand people. My experience has been that it is very difficult for one or two performers to hold an audience of this size in an outdoor setting. Although I enjoyed their You Tube video and thought they sounded very good and authentic, I just wasn’t sure if they could master our audience. Considering the quality of their sound and the fact that everyone knows and loves Simon & Garfunkel music, I booked them. As the concert went on, I could feel the audience warming up to Jeb and Jock quickly. By the time we finished the concert, it literally seemed like a magical “lovefest” of music in the park. The audience loved their performance, personalities, and their stories. I think people felt a real sense of sincerity from the two of them on stage. In return, Jeb and Jock really fed off the audience. It really was a magical evening and one that had people coming to me, pleading to have them back. I wasn’t sure two performers with acoustic guitars could pull it off, but it was a tremendous success! I would highly recommend Scarborough Fair for any concert setting, whether it is a coffeehouse or a large outdoor park. These two are good enough to pull it off and create the same kind of magic I imagine those in Central Park experienced years ago in New York City!

  • It is my pleasure to recommend "Scarborough Fair - a Tribute To Simon & Garfunkel" for your event. We booked this duo at Hersheypark for an engagement in early 2012 during our Springtime in the Park season and were very impressed with their musicianship, professionalism, and the positive guest response that they garnered. Additionally, our on-site crew was complimentary of this group for all of the same reasons listed above and enjoyed working with them.

  • July 24, 2012 To: Entertainment Unlimited by Ted Fass,Inc. Rockville Centre, NY 11570 Dear Tina: We recently booked “ScarboroughFair – A Tribute to Simon & Garfunkel”. They were very well received by our audience. Their presentation was smooth and professional as they prefaced each song selection with a related story or anecdote relating to the words, the original recording, or to Simon & Garfunkel. The presentation was informative and musically pleasing. Equally important, they were a pleasure to work with. They made sure to adhere to our house policies for shows and were early in their arrival for the setup, sound check and showtime. Their music, vocals and guitar accompaniments were note-accurate representations of the songs they referred to and the best compliment comes from the fact that our audience bought tickets and showed up because they knew and loved Simon & Garfunkel songs, and “Scarborough Fair” did a wonderful job of bringing that music to life to our receptive audience.

  • We have run a Passover program for 37 years at the Hudson Valley Resort & Spa in Kerhonkson, NY. We contracted The Guthrie Brothers - Scarborough Fair - A Tribute To Simon & Garfunkel this year and they put on an outstanding performance. They performed for us a few years back and we received several requests by returning guests to bring them back again. We were glad we did; the response was overwhelming. The group is professional and offers a high level of entertainment, and their performance enhanced our program. We are looking forward to working with them in the future.

  • I was extremely pleased with the recent performance of “Scarborough Fair” at an event we hosted at the Honors Haven Resort on April 8, 2012. I received nothing but positive reviews about their show, their professionalism, and their audience reaction. I would call that a booking success. I was pleased enough with the response that I attended a performance two weeks later at B.B. King’s Blues Club in New York City as a guest of Jeb and Jock Guthrie, the brothers who are Scarborough Fair, and saw why they got such a good reaction at my event.
