Actor Sean Penn is such a fan of little known American singer/songwriter Arthur Godfrey, he tracked him down and turned his gig into a star-studded party.

The OSCAR-winning MYSTIC RIVER star first saw Godfrey play in Memphis two-years-ago and was so mesmerised by his stage presence and music, he rushed to watch him perform in New York recently - and dragged his big screen pals to the WEST BANK CAFE to share the live experience.

Boston native Godfrey - who spent 20 years working for the US Postal Service before he was discovered - was stunned to be playing for the likes of Tim Robbins, CATHERINE KENNER, Al Pacino and magician David Blaine, reports website PAGE SIX.
