About Arlo Guthrie

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 to foster an entire generation’s commitment to social consciousness and activism. Mingling classically styled folk songs with clever storytelling is Guthrie’s trademark. In addition to broad accomplishments as a musician – playing the piano, six- and 12-string guitars, harmonica, and a dozen other instruments – Guthrie is a natural-born storyteller, a skill he loves to share with his fans. Arlo, along with his son Abe, will be joined onstage on the forthcoming tour with longtime collaborators Terry “A La Berry” Hall (drums), Steve Ide (guitar, vocals) and Carol Ide (vocals, percussion) of his former acclaimed band Shenandoah. This show will be a family affair, with Guthrie’s daughter, Sarah Lee Guthrie, opening the show. The performance will include clips and stories from the film Alice’s Restaurant, in addition to songs from the soundtrack.
