Folk music icon Arlo Guthrie is a legendary artist who shares timeless stories and unforgettable classic songs as he carries on the Guthrie family legacy. With his singular voice as both a singer-songwriter and social commentator, he has maintained a dedicated fan base that spans the globe. A celebrated figure in American music, Arlo connects with communities far and wide leaving a lasting impression of hope and inspiration. His artistic ventures help bridge an often-divided world through his powerful spirit of song, and his inimitable musical ingenuity forges to new creative heights as he continues to entertain generations.

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 Times Like These (2007), one of Rising Son’s most recent releases, features Arlo alongside the University of Kentucky Symphony Orchestra. The album marks the culmination of his work with 27 symphony orchestras and more than 40 live concerts. His show at Boston Symphony Hall, conducted by Keith Lockhart, was recorded and aired on PBS’s Evening at the Pops. In 2001, the Fourth of July celebration with the Pops was broadcasted live by A&E. A compelling collection of original songs and select American classics performed by Arlo and the University of Kentucky Symphony Orchestra, In Times Like These was released on vinyl in the fall of 2009.

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.

Arlo’s 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.

    This would be a dream. One of my favorite troubadours and balladeers since I first remember him in the early sixties. It would fulfill a dream of mine to be able see him live!

    I would love to win these tickets to give to my office mate who is a Guthrie fan and who just moved to the area. Thanks!

    It would be “typical case of American blind justice”, for my daughter “not seeing and hearing” this beautiful American legend …

    Then I’d have to show her the”27 8×10 color glossy pictures with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one explaining what each one was to be used as evidence against us”

    ARLO is Awesome!!!!!!

  12. Alan April 10, 2014 at 2:13 pm #

    I just got that sound looping app Jimmy Fallon and Billy Joel used on the Tonight Show, and the first thing I did with it was record myself singing Alice’s Restaurant Masacree in four part harmony. Just like the man said to do. The wars ain’t over yet, but I’m hoping to build a movement.

    How great! Would love to go.

  14. Gaby April 10, 2014 at 2:29 pm #

    I love Arlo Guthrie! I’d love to go and take an unsuspecting friend for a fun Wednesday night

  15. Fred April 10, 2014 at 2:52 pm #

    Love Arlo Guthrie! Ever since I saw Alice’s Restaurant. It would be amazing to see him in person. would really love to take my wife. She loved that movie as well. We are big fans!

  16. Anne April 10, 2014 at 3:34 pm #

    Would be great to see him, he might sing some Pete Seeger songs in tribute. That would be so sweet.

  17. Nadine April 10, 2014 at 3:50 pm #

    City of New Orleans – from Hobo’s Lullaby – one of my faves – even tho he didn’t write it – he performed it so perfectly everyone associates that song with him. I’d love to see Arlo sing it, and anything else. Please pick me.

  18. Dorothy April 10, 2014 at 4:27 pm #

    Its not like we all don’t have history with Arlo…that you remember. I even took my 3 young sons to see him with the OR Symphony. They called him The Guy who would not sell Alice. Said he should be heard in the park. I like a small venue like the Alidden. Lets hope those tickets come to me. I’ll take one of my sons again.

    There’s no way I am going to win this, but I’m trying. Hey, who knows, maybe Officer Obie will be there.

  20. Gemma April 10, 2014 at 5:57 pm #

    Been volunteering instead of working and would love to catch a break with this great show. Thanks.

  21. Jessica April 10, 2014 at 6:19 pm #

    I want to go so I can take my dad! He loves the Guth!

  22. steadywithabadpun April 10, 2014 at 6:24 pm #

    Really want to see this show, if I don’t win tix I’ll probably still go, because for a great show the prices Arlo.

  23. Janelle April 10, 2014 at 7:12 pm #

    I don’t want a pickle, I just want to ride on my motor-sickle

  24. Aaron April 10, 2014 at 7:14 pm #

    I remember when Arlo and I were coming out of Los Angeles with a couple of keys riding our motorcycles when a police man stopped us and made us pick up trash off the side of the highway. Or maybe that happened in a dream.

    • Tracy April 10, 2014 at 11:16 pm #

      It sounded like a righteous dream man = D Hope all of us on here can make the show regardless, sounds like it could be a groovy get together. What a great way to kick off the warm weather!!

  25. Woody Mims April 10, 2014 at 9:37 pm #

    I’m named after his father and have a first pressing of Alice’s Restaurant which we listen to each year for Turkey Day! He and I are both Cancerians and, well I just can’t afford to pay to see him despite being a long time fan. Please enter me into the drawing.

    • Tracy April 10, 2014 at 11:19 pm #

      What an honor to be name after a folk legend and speaker for the generations. You should be very proud = D

  26. Tony April 11, 2014 at 12:57 am #

    To see Arlo would be a dream come true!! Love his music!!

    • Ella April 11, 2014 at 10:18 am #

      We love Arlo and love the Aladdin…..

  27. Elizabeth April 11, 2014 at 10:05 am #

    I’ve been a fan since I was a child but have never had the chance to experience him in person! What a wonderful storyteller in song!

  28. Dave G. April 11, 2014 at 10:47 am #

    I’d leave Thanksgiving dinner on the table to be able to attend this show!!!

  29. Jean April 11, 2014 at 3:22 pm #

    Damn, who wouldn’t want to see a living ledgend ……

  30. Jamie April 12, 2014 at 3:26 am #

    I would sleep so well are seeing Arlo!

  31. Jaime Bogdash April 12, 2014 at 12:07 pm #

    My friends son is obsessed with music and instruments and loves Arlo. She really wants to bring him since he now knows who Arlo is and can sit through a whole concert (at 2.5!) but doesn’t have near enough money to go. This would be the nicest gift for a really sweet single mama and her music obsessed son.

  32. Monica April 12, 2014 at 3:06 pm #

    I would love to see this!

  33. Lisa April 13, 2014 at 7:10 am #

  34. tim mercer April 16, 2014 at 12:41 pm #
