Arlo Guthrie

Closed October 20, 2017

Arlo Guthrie is more a genuine storyteller with a guitar than a singer with a few anecdotes to peddled out as patter. An elaborate yarn introduced each song, and so elaborate were these stories that you began to feel like one of the family.

Why See Arlo Guthrie?

MUSIC'S MOST SUCCESSFUL NOBODY

Over the last four decades Arlo Guthrie has toured throughout North America, Europe, Asia and Australia and won a broad and dedicated following. In addition to being an accomplished musician - playing the piano, six and twelve-string guitar, harmonica and a dozen other instruments - Arlo is a natural-born storyteller whose hilarious tales and anecdotes are woven seamlessly into his performances.

Arlo Guthrie is often jokingly referred to as being a 'three-hit wonder' thanks to three of his songs which each earned fame for slightly different reasons and at different times in his career. His most famous single though is undoubtedly the anti-War "Alice's Restaurant Massacree" - an 18-minute long songs that beautifully blends lazy blues and spoken word, it's an 18-minute musical monologue in which he details how he was made ineligible for the Vietnam draft on Thanksgiving 1965 by being prosecuted for littering, after hurling a bag of restaurant trash off a cliff.

Don't miss him live this year on when he brings his Running Down The Road tour to Palace Theatre in Greensburg, PA, Closed October 20, 2017.
