Stuart's welcomes the legendary Arlo Guthrie to the Opera House for a special evening of music! 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 will embark on a new solo tour, Here Comes The Kid, which will begin October 2012 and run through 2013 continuing 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 storytelling. Join Arlo Guthrie in honoring the enduring commitment of Woody Guthrie with an unforgettable night of music and stories confirming that the folk tradition of Woody is alive and well. 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.
Arlo Guthrie left the major record label system in 1983 to pursue life as a truly independent artist, bringing his thriving career into the hands of a family-run business with the launch of his own label Rising Son Records. Currently operated by daughters Annie and Cathy Guthrie, Rising Son debuted with the release of Arlo’s Someday (1986). Since its inception, Rising Son has served as a family label housing Arlo’s complete catalogue as well as albums by Woody Guthrie and family, Pete Seeger & Arlo Guthrie, Sarah Lee Guthrie & Johnny Irion (Rt. 8 Records), Abe Guthrie and his band Xavier, Folk Uke (Cathy Guthrie and Amy Nelson, daughter of Willie Nelson), plus the soundtrack to Woody Guthrie Hard Travelin’.
In celebration of the 40th anniversary of Woodstock, Rising Son released Tales of ’69 (August 18, 2009). Recorded just prior to Woodstock, the recently discovered lost tape highlights Arlo live in concert in Long Island, NY and features nine tracks including an epic 28-minute talking blues tale as well as three previously unrecorded songs. His ambitions have always included various community projects in addition to his artistic pursuits. In 1991, he purchased the old Trinity Church near Stockbridge, MA, which is now home to The Guthrie Center, named for his parents, and The Guthrie Foundation. The Guthrie Center is a not-for-profit interfaith church foundation dedicated to providing a wide range of local and international services. The Guthrie Foundation is a separate not-for-profit educational organization that addresses issues such as the environment, health care, cultural preservation and educational exchange. In 2009, Arlo was awarded the ASCAP Foundation Champion award for making a difference through social action on behalf of worthwhile causes and demonstrating exceptional efforts in humanitarianism.
