One week before launching the U.S. leg of the tour on October 16, Garfunkel, along with Maia Sharp and Buddy Mondlock, will release their disc Everything Waits To Be Noticed.

The album is Garfunkels first set of new tunes since 1997’s Songs From A Parent To A Child.

The first set of dates for the outing find the trio in mostly West Coast venues. Shows are still being added to the itinerary, including an East Coast trek. The schedule has the folkies sticking Stateside through the end of the year and then tackling European theatres starting in February.

All in all, the extensive tour will find Garfunkel, Sharp and Mondlock on the road for at least eight months.

Concert-goers can expect to hear songs from the new album, Garfunkel’s solo career, Simon & Garfunkel hits, as well as solo sets from Sharp and Mondlock.

While the three artists teamed up for Everything Waits To Be Noticed, both Sharp and Mondlock also have established solo careers. Sharp, daughter of country songwriter Randy Sharp, released her second album this past spring and has been steady on the road since, supporting Keb’ Mo’, Patty Griffin, and Jonny Lang.

Mondlock is a regular on the Chicago club scene and has seen artists including Nanci Griffith and Peter, Paul & Mary record his songs. His latest album was released in 1999.
