Simon and Garfunkel have been added to the lineup for this year's New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.

The singing-songwriting duo of Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel will join the previously announced Jazz Fest lineup that includes Pearl Jam, Aretha Franklin, Van Morrison, The Neville Brothers, Lionel Richie, the Allman Brothers Band and Anita Baker.

The festival is scheduled for the weekends of April 23-25 and April 29-May 2 at the Fair Grounds Race Course. Simon and Garfunkel are slated to perform on Saturday, April 24.

While Simon has performed at Jazz Fest before, this will be the duo's first time performing at the event together. Festival organizers say it is also their only planned U.S. appearance for the year.

Other 2010 Jazz Fest acts on tap include My Morning Jacket, Widespread Panic, B.B. King, Darius Rucker, Irma Thomas, The Black Crowes and Drake.
