Paying Tribute to Woody

This spring legendary folkie Arlo Guthrie hits the road with a small ensemble to celebrate the work of his renowned father, Woody. With only a dozen stops scheduled, each of these intimate concert appearances is destined to be a flavorfully significant reiteration of Woody’s immense stature in the annals of American music, as well as an opportunity to show off a folk family whose musical cred ranks right up there with Dylan and Cohen.

Accompanied by his son (Woody’s grandson) Abe and longtime collaborators Terry Hall and Bobby Sweet, the storied composer of seminal '60s protest tune “Alice’s Restaurant” will perform a cross-section of the Guthrie family legacy. Besides grand distinction as an American musical voice, Guthrie is known for his sharp wit and gift for telling stories that turn out to be pertinent reflections on the quintessential American cultural experience. The “Here Comes the Kid” tour makes Burque its second destination tomorrow at the KiMo Theatre (423 Central NW). Doors open at 6:30pm, and the show begins at 7:30pm. Ticket prices range from $39 to $59 and are available at holdmyticket.com and the KiMo box office. KiMo Theatre • Thu Apr 3 • 7:30pm • $39-$59 • ALL-AGES! • View on Alibi calendar
