Review for Feelin' Groovy:

Feelin’ Groovy is a “trip” back to the time of freedom, love and lava lamps - and what better songs to represent that time than those of Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel. Their music and lyrics are synonymous with the ‘60s.  Featuring classics including “The Sound of Silence,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” “Mrs. Robinson,” and “Scarborough Fair” – their songs are the soundtrack of a decade that vibrated a nation. This guitar trio stars the talented creator and performer Jim Witter and features Ian Tanner performing the timeless classic hits of the decade’s most famous folk duo.  Witter’s music and songwriting has earned him multiple awards and nominations from the Canadian Country Music Association, the Juno Awards, and the Dove Awards.  He has shared the stage with such notables as Faith Hill, The Beach Boys, Toby Keith, and Shania Twain, who introduced him on stage as her “favorite Canadian male artist.”

The Cleveland-Bradley Concert Association has been presenting internationally acclaimed artists since 1958.  This all-volunteer nonprofit organization is committed to enriching the cultural life of the Cleveland-Bradley area through live performances.
