An evening with Arlo
Born in Brooklyn (thats in New York, folks) in 1947, Arlo Guthrie came from a musical heritage his dad was Woody Guthrie (a folkie philosopher).
Arlo spent his childhood in the most famous venues of the folk boom era. He witnessed the transition from an earlier generation of ballad singers like Richard Dyer-Bennet and blues-men like Mississippi John Hurt, to a new era of singer/songwriters such as Bob Dylan, Jim Croce, Joan Baez, and Phil Ochs.
Arlo, a consummate storyteller as well as musician, will perform at the Lismore Workers Club next Friday, June 6, from 7.30pm. Tickets are $42 and available from the venue (6621 7401).
