Reading Room Concert: Simons & Goodwin
Simons and Goodwin got their beginning back in the 1960’s when they met while performing in the Boston and Cambridge coffeehouses. Bob Simons was a single act while Renee Boghosian (later Goodwin) was performing with the now well-known folk artist Bill Staines. Their individual talents did not come together, however, until 2006 when their long friendship turned into ‘Simons and Goodwin’. Simons and Goodwin have a smooth sound consisting of intricate arrangements, tight expression and beautiful harmonies. They have an eclectic repertoire with performances tailored to the audience. While primarily a folk duo they can treat country, old rock, jazz and blues standards with similar musical skill.
