When: Fri., May 1, 8 p.m. 2015
Folk icon Arlo Guthrie will bring the Alice’s Restaurant 50th Anniversary Tour to the Egyptian Room on May 1. Performing for over 50,000 people in the pouring rain at Woodstock in 1969, Arlo Guthrie cemented his status as a folk legend early on. Bursting onto the scene with Alice's Restaurant , Guthrie's knack for politically charged, guitar-laden storytelling caught on, making him a mainstay of the folk boom era. 50 years later, Guthrie continues his father's legacy for storytelling and politically charged folk. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
