For the three-song finale, Simon — who quit the road with a farewell tour in 2018, but has made occasional live appearances since — opened with a full-band version of “Graceland” and closed with a spookily solo “Sounds of Silence.” What came between was a moment for the ages, with Giddens, one of the greatest voices America has, singing lead and playing banjo on “American Tune,” while Simon merely provided expert finger-picking guitar accompaniment. Giddens, who has frequently explored the music of slavery and its offshoots, changed the lyrics to “we didn’t… come on the Mayflower,” with the meaning of that shift unmistakable. It was proof, just like the whole evening, of how surprisingly adaptable Simon’s songs have been, even if their poetry was just peculiar enough that it was always difficult to imagine them belonging to anyone else when he was at the mic.
