Arlo Guthrie

Wayback Weekend Celebration!

July 21 at 8 p.m.

 

Arlo Guthrie, eldest son of America’s most beloved singer/writer/philosopher Woody Guthrie, is an artist of international stature.

His career exploded in 1967 with the release of “Alice’s Restaurant,” whose title song helped foster an entire generation’s commitment to social consciousness and activism. In 1991, Arlo was able to purchase the Old Trinity Church, where the Thanksgiving 1965 events that inspired the song took place. Now called The Guthrie Center, it houses a not-for-profit educational organization.

Arlo is also widely credited with recording the definitive rendition of Steve Goodman’s “ity of New Orleans.” His own, similarly iconic “Coming into Los Angeles” emerged as an indisputable crowd favorite at the 1969 Woodstock Festival.

Classically styled folk songs intermingled with clever storytelling are Arlo’s trademark. In addition to broad accomplishments as a musician – playing the piano, six- and 12 string guitars, harmonica and a dozen other instruments – Arlo is also a natural-born storyteller whose tales and anecdotes figure prominently in live performances. Arlo’s music and humor represent a heartfelt testament to his wildly devoted friends and fans both old and new.
