Tour Dates: Guthrie Family Reunion

As we’ve previously mentioned around these parts, 2012 marks the 100th birthday of arguably the most influential singer-songwriter of all-time – Woody Guthrie. With loads of centennial events taking place throughout the course of the year, it’s no surprise that Guthrie’s progeny are also getting in on the act. This summer, three generations of Guthries will hit the road together for a 12-date tour that’s being billed as “The Guthrie Family Reunion.” Led by Arlo, the packaged tour will also feature Woody’s grand-kids Abe, Cathy, Annie and Sarah Lee Guthrie, as well as her husband Johnny Irion, and even his great-grand-kids, performing “Woody’s songs as well as new material written by various family members.” The short run will kick off on July 7 at Lock Live 3 in Akron, Ohio and includes a high profile stop at the Newport Folk Festival, in Newport, Rhode Island on Saturday, July 28.

If the Guthrie Family Reunion tour isn’t hitting a town near you, then maybe you’ll be able to hit one of these recently announced tours…

  1. Thanks for reminding me. I live very near Lock 3 and will be there. Thanks Arlo for doing this. I actually believe I have all of Woodies commercially available cds. I had a great time talking with you in Akron a few years back. You were kind, gentlemanly, and patient, and that’s what made you “cool”.
