September 19, 2018 - Steady As She Goes
by adg on Wed Sep 19, 2018 5:17 am
We're halfway thru September, the recent storms have abated, and we're preparing to pack it all up and start our next tour. It's been wonderful having a few weeks off here in The Berkshires. It was quite a busy summer and the down time following the shows at the church was much appreciated. This time of year, up here, the leaves are just beginning to turn amazing colors. In fact, there appears to be a lot of people already heading to the area with cameras everywhere. I'm another one, I guess.

The restaurants, hotels, and streets are already teaming with visitors hoping to see a little of the season's brilliant landscape. And it's only going to get worse. But, it's a worse we love. No complaints. We're fairly isolated up at the farm, being at the end of a dirt road, and essentially a dead end. No one comes here by accident. Except for this time of year when people are driving or walking around exploring the back roads, and enjoying the seasonal colors.

We've been here in this spot for 50 years having moved here in 1969. Things are pretty much the same now as they were then. At least it'd be somewhat familiar. We've naturally had to grow with the years, so there's a few new buildings, and roads to accommodate the studio, office, and pastures and we've added a few new rooms to the old farm as the kids got older. But, it seems settled in at this point.

I've come to love being here when it's possible. Although what we tend to leave quite often, which also makes retuning enjoyable. We'll be back for a few days around the Thanksgiving holiday. There's folks in the office all year round, but some of us have to get on the tour buses from time to time, and keep the old songs going. So, that's what we're preparing to do today, this week and next. After that we'll be coming your way (maybe) and adding to the traffic in your area. I've got my cameras ready... So smile as we go by. adg
Live At The Church
by adg on Sat Aug 11, 2018 10:44 am
We're halfway thru our new series - Live At The Guthrie Center - and so far it's been a lot of fun, altho we had some difficulties streaming it live, as it happened. Never-the-less, it seems to be getting better as the month rolls along. Hopefully, that will continue. And, more importantly I hope anyone who's reading this has had a chance to see what we're doing (if it's of interest).

Summer 2018

June 13, 2018 - Sebastian, FL

Summer 2018

We’ve finished with the originally scheduled shows of our “Re:Generation Tour. The final two gigs were at The Church (The Guthrie Center) in Housatonic, MA. Both nights were absolutely wonderful, and we were thrilled to be playing nearby our homes - No hotel nights as usual.

However, we’ve added a number of “Re:Generation” shows to the schedule that will take us through July. Many of these added shows are gigs I’ve done before, but usually solo. They begin again in Alaska and a few are in the Northwest. Then we’ll continue the tour in the Northeast for some venues that only usually operate during the summer.

Our next regularly scheduled tour will begin late September or early October. It’s being called “The Arlo Guthrie - Alice’s Restaurant - Back By Popular Demand Tour.” That’s about the longest name for a tour we’ve ever had. Essentially we’re creating a new and different show than we did for there 50th anniversary that took place from January 2015 through May 2016. We were celebrating the 50th anniversary of the events that took place 50 years earlier during the Fall of 1965.

This time, we’re celebrating the 50th anniversary of the movie “Alice’s Restaurant,” which was released in 1969. We’re also including references to the other major event of my life in 1969 - Woodstock. But, it’s not all backward looking.

Just as the Greatest Generation - Those who lived through WWII - Has all but faded from the scene, The 60’s Generation is beginning to make it’s exit. Naturally, I’m in there somewhere. And despite all the news (if you want to call it that), I’m reasonably assured that the spirit of working together to make a better world for everyone will continue undiminished. It may even out-shine the great light of hope previous generations have been drawn to.
Cheryl

Friends... I've been informed that Cheryl Harrell has left this world. She was such an ardent supporter and devoted friend for decades. She will be greatly missed as a member of our community. I don't have many details, but I wanted to inform everyone here on arlonet of her passing. I'm sure we'll get more information shortly. I guess most of us are getting to the point where this kind of news isn't really new. Still with each passing friend the world gets a little smaller. There'll be more to say, but for now that's what I've heard.
Back On The Highways

Now we begin the Re:Generation Tour again, picking up from where we left off last year. We've finished a couple of nights in Key West - essentially a tune-up so we'd know what we were doing. It was a fabulous time in a nice small venue. From here on out it's back to the larger halls (for the most part). We'll be working our way up from Florida, through the Carolinas into Virginia. Then Heading to the mid-west and all the way to the left coast as far north as Sacramento, CA, before coming back to the east side and ending the tour at The Church for our semi-annual fund-raiser there in May. We're already working on gigs in the northwest as well (the ones we will have missed this time). Maybe even something over seas... We'll see what happens.

Many new dates are posted here and on our homepage (www.arloguthrie.com). We're getting the word out for anyone interested, that we're coming and going as always. Looking forward to seeing many of you wherever and whenever.
