Arlo Guthrie pays homage to his father, Woody Guthrie, in a
tribute upon the centennial of Woody's birth. See him Nov. 11 at
Arlo Guthrie honors the music and legacy of his legendary father
upon the centennial of Woody Guthrie's birth with an unforgettable
night of songs and stories which confirm that the folk tradition
started by Woody remains alive and well through the music of his
son. Arlo Guthrie performs at The Paramount Theatre on Sunday, Nov.
11, at 6 p.m.
Throughout his own career Arlo Guthrie has honored his
father in song as well as in life. With the centennial of Woody's
100th birthday approaching, Arlo continues the celebration of
Woody Guthrie's immeasurable contributions to the landscape of
American folk music.
Since childhood, Arlo was amazed by the creative genius of his
father and his friends that would drop by: Leadbelly, Brownee
McGee, and Cisco Houston to name a few. Not surprising, Arlo drew
from those experiences and he in turn became a delineative figure
for a new generation. Arlo has long paid homage to his dad with his
own renditions of Woody's songs, but of equal importance - Woody's
legacy is well defined in Arlo's own works: in his humor, his
political and social activism, and his undeniable gift for
Arlo's exceptional solo shows are a unique and inspiring
experience providing an intimacy with the audience that is
unparalleled. Here Comes the Kid will run nationwide
through 2013 in select venues, and will celebrate the legacy of
Guthrie's father in a manner to make any parent proud: to take what
his dad started, and make it his own.
