Folk singer Arlo Guthrie
and his children Abe and Sarah
Lee perform the music of three generations of Guthries at Mayo Performing Arts Center on Friday, May 11 at 8 pm. Tickets for the Re-Generation Tour are $39-$69. WXPN-FM is the media partner for this concert.
The father of the American protest song, Woody Guthrie hoped one day to have enough kids to form a family band to travel the country and sing songs to the people. The Re:Generation Tour realizes Woody's dream through the inspiring work of folk icon Arlo Guthrie
and his children Sarah
Lee Guthrie and Abe Guthrie.
Woody Guthrie built a legacy of activism that the Guthrie family continues to preserve with their leading voices in the current revolution against oppression and injustice. Arlo picked up the torch in the sixties, and passed along the Guthrie traditions, in turn, to his children. Arlo's Re:Generation Tour gives voice to the common folk with their characteristic Guthrie honesty and humor through the power of community and song. Arlo and The Guthrie Family aspire to represent hope for working families across this great nation. The Re:Generation Tour is an uplifting, thought-provoking and humorous evening with songs and stories from all generations of Guthries, past and present.
"The road continues to beckon and the kids, with kids of their own, are hearing the call of their own thoughts. Onward!" -Arlo
