Born with a guitar in one hand and a harmonica in the other, Arlo Guthrie's folk pedigree is legendary, his music a symbol of a generation of civil justice and activism. Son to America's most beloved singer/writer/philosopher Woodie Guthrie, Arlo grew up surrounded by such influential musicians as Pete Seeger, Ronnie Gilbert, and Ramblin' Jack Elliott, and was fully immersed in the "Folk Boom" era. He grooved with the beat poets like Allen Ginsburg and Lord Buckley, and picked with players like Bill Monroe and Doc Watson, learning something from everyone yet developing his own distinctive style along the way. Guthrie's career exploded with hits like "Alice's Restaurant," "City of New Orleans," and the counterculture song he made famous at Woodstock, "Coming into Los Angeles." Guthrie performs songs from over 25 albums--playing piano, guitar, harmonica, and a dozen other instruments while seamlessly entertaining the audience with his notable hilarious tales. Tickets: $80, $70, $50
