For the past year Arlo Guthrie has toured in recognition of father Woody’s centennial. The younger artist continues to honor the elder’s remarkable legacy with this celebration, a spirited musical tribute from a son to his father.
Woody Guthrie instilled in his children the commitment to fighting the good fight, a notion that Arlo has always brought to his own work throughout his career spanning over four decades. Arlo’s songwriting, humor, activism and unequaled manner of telling a tale discernibly exhibit the Guthrie family traits that Woody imparted. Arlo also draws from the extensive catalogue of songs taught to him by Woody and friends such as Lead Belly, Cisco Houston, and Brownie McGhee. More than fifty years after his first performance opening for Cisco, Arlo’s commitment to music and tradition is as strong as ever. The Here Come The Kid(s) tour emphasizes the best-loved songs and stories that the Guthrie family most closely associates with the distinguished patriarch.
