Arlo Guthrie

Arlo Guthrie was never going to be the second coming of his esteemed father, American folk treasure Woody Guthrie. That’s a distinction that was always going to belong to Bob Dylan. Shit, even Arlo himself would probably tell you that. However, far from lazily wasting away in the glow of the acclaim that his pops achieved, Arlo has consistently found his own path as a songwriter, a performer and an activist. Most celebrated for his 1967 hippie epic “Alice’s Restaurant,” and the movie adaptation that followed in 1969, Arlo has released over 25 albums, landed a smattering of film and TV roles, and remained devoted to political activism even when it wasn’t in vogue. He’s a funny personality with a unique take on the maturation of America and a gifted storyteller who writes and plays with a refreshing open-heartedness. Lamentably, his reputation as a humorous persona has, in many ways, wrongly overshadowed what is a truly admirable body of folk-rock output. Catch him live at the Tobin as he celebrates the 50th anniversary of the absurd events that inspired his most beloved song.
