ACG Presents : Arlo Guthrie’s Here Come The Kids Tour
For the past year Arlo Guthrie has been touring solo in celebration of his father Woody Guthrie’s centennial. Arlo continues to honor the elder Guthrie’s remarkable legacy with a series of live shows accompanied by a small band for a spirited musical tribute by a son for his father.
Woody Guthrie instilled in his children the commitment to fighting the good fight, a notion that Arlo Guthrie has always brought to his own work throughout his career spanning over four decades. Arlo’s songwriting, humor, activism and the 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 Leadbelly, Cisco Houston and Brownee McGee. 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 Kids Tour” will have an emphasis on the best-loved songs and stories the Guthrie family closely associate with the distinguished patriarch.
Be a part of the continuing celebration with Arlo Guthrie honoring the tremendous contributions Woody Guthrie made to American music and the social climate! Having long been known for his simultaneously inspiring and hilarious shows, Guthrie promises no less with this tour. Don’t miss this chance to join Arlo in celebrating his unique inheritance from and the lasting influence of Woody Guthrie.
