Arlo Guthrie, the eldest son of America's most beloved singer/writer/philosopher Woody Guthrie performs a night of inspiring music accompanied by heartwarming storytelling. With his exceptional solo skills, Arlo proves that the folk tradition his father helped create is still alive and well. Arlo grew up surrounded by dancers and musicians: Pete Seeger, Ronnie Gilbert, Fred Hellerman and Lee Hays. He absorbed the musical lessons brought to him by each, and along with his father's legacy, their influence created the performer he is today.
Backed by a band which includes his son Abe on keyboards and grandson Krishna on guitar, Guthrie and his family perform a set that touches all four corners of the fabric of American music, including standards, some of his own songs (along with the Steve Goodman-penned "City of New Orleans," which he made famous) and Woody Guthrie's anthem "This Land Is Your Land." This is a unique opportunity to see this legend perform!
