The spirit of the Guthrie Family has been handed down from generation to generation.
“It’s in the songs, the humor, the commitment to keep making the world a little
better for everyone,” says Arlo. The Legacy Tour will both honor Woody’s tradition
and explore new ground as it weaves its way through the generations of Guthries.
Arlo Guthrie tours the country on The Guthrie Family Legacy Tour celebrating four
generations of Guthrie Family music along with his son Abe, his daughter’s duo Sarah
Lee Guthrie & Johnny Irion, and multi-instrumentalist Gordon Titcomb. The Guthries
will visit Woody’s songs and share old stories. The spirit of the Guthrie Family has

There are millions of people who know the name Woody Guthrie. There may even be some
who are familiar with his songs like “This Land Is Your Land,” or “The Reno Blues
(Philadelphia Lawyer),” or “Oklahoma Hills.” Many come to discover him through his
friends like Pete Seeger, or perhaps young Bob Dylan. Nora Guthrie (Woody’s daughter
and Arlo’s sister) has introduced Woody to many young musicians, asking them to
create melodies to lyrics where no music existed. Wilco and Billy Bragg, Eliza
Gilkyson, The Klezmatics, Janis Ian and many more have recorded these new
collaborations. Arlo wrote a haunting melody for his father’s song “My Peace.” The
Legacy Tour will cover family favorites of Woody’s originals and the new songs.
“…[Arlo is the best interpreter of his father’s songs, and to hear Arlo Guthrie
sing a Woody Guthrie song is to hear it wonderfully close to its original source.” –
Steve Leggett, All Music Guide
Arlo Guthrie, along with his son Abe, daughter number three, Sarah Lee and her
husband, Johnny Irion will form the core band. They have all contributed to the
family legacy by writing and performing their own material. And everyone will be
singing Woody’s songs that have kept the Guthrie Family the first family of American
Folk Music for generations.
