August 6, 2017, 7:30 pmOne of the greatest performers, storytellers and songwriters in all of music, Arlo Guthrie is one of the last artists to have a direct connection to the American folk music scene that his father helped to create and foster. Tie dyes and head bands are optional.
Here are Arlo’s own words about his life:
“My Oughta-Biography: I was born July 10th 1947 in Coney Island, Brooklyn, NY with a guitar in one hand and a harmonica in the other. I have successfully foiled every opportunity to be somebody in the entertainment industry. I’ve done about 30 records, a few motion pictures, a TV series, books for little kids, started a few recording and production companies and two not-for-profit foundations. I’ve been in jail and I’ve been in love. I’ve been to almost every place except Newfoundland, and I hope to get there soon. I know every road and trail worth taking here in the US, including Alaska and Hawaii. I’ve spent over 40 years on the road discovering the rest of humanity and I’m still not proud or tired. I’ve made some friends along the journey and figure there’s a few more yet to meet. I am happy to share what I don’t know with anyone who doesn’t expect anything from me. No judgement – no expectations. If you run with me you come at your own risk. I have no interests, hobbies, or goals except to outrun the truth that shadows my every move.”
