"The Guthries are the first family of American folk. They practice what Woody preached." -Vanity Fair

"[Woody] Guthrie music is alive and well, and that the legacy is in good hands." -Robert Price, New Jersey Herald

This month, folk music icon Arlo Guthrie will begin his trek across North America with three generations of Guthries for "Guthrie Family Rides Again."

The concerts on the upcoming "Guthrie Family Rides Again" tour will feature Arlo's standards as well as a selection of unpublished Woody Guthrie lyrics recently put to music by such distinguished artists as Billy Bragg, Wilco, Eliza Gilkyson, Janis Ian, Wenzel, The Klezmatics, and others. With many notable musicians from around the world contributing to keep the work of Woody Guthrie alive and well, the Guthrie Family will pay tribute to these artists as they perform some of the newly composed tunes.

"Guthrie Family Rides Again" spotlights three generations of Guthries including Arlo's son Abe, who has contributed keyboards and backing vocals to his father's live shows since the '80s. His daughters Cathy, Annie and Sarah Lee Guthrie, all of who have their own bustling music careers, will support by singing songs and accompanying on acoustic guitars. Sarah Lee's musical partner and husband Johnny Irion will lead songs and lend his stalwart guitar playing. The youngest generation of Guthrie kids will join in the fun on select songs.
