ARLO GUTHRIE: Boys' Night Out Tour
Arlo Guthrie's concerts embody the spirit of the '60s while staying at the forefront of contemporary folk, all combined with his unique style, which is at once hilarious and inspiring. The legendary singer-songwriter gets back to his roots, performing his hits and many deep album cuts from a repertoire spanning more than 40 years. Guthrie has long been a crowd favorite as he incorporates his humorous philosophical reflections with folk-rock classics and brilliantly crafted, thought-provoking new works. Son Abe Guthrie, grandson Krishna Guthrie, instrumentalist Gordon Titcomb, and long-time drummer Terry "a la Berry" Hall form the Boys' Night Out band, offering both synergistic and familial support. www.arlo.net
