The Kentucky Center and NS2 present
Alice's Restaurant 50th Anniversary Tour
Thursday, February 25, 7:30 p.m.
315 W. Broadway, Louisville 40202
Like his father Woody Guthrie, Arlo Guthrie is known for singing songs of protest against social injustice. Arlo performed at the original Woodstock Festival and became an icon of the 1960's counterculture generation. Arlo toured extensively with his father's dear friend, folk music legend Pete Seeger, and has also performed with Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Doc Watson and Bill Monroe. Alice's Restaurant Massacree - his most popular song - is an 18-minute tale of his rejection by the draft board.
In an interview with USA TODAY, Guthrie said: "Alice’s Restaurant was simply too long to perform at every gig we do, so I do it for about a year or so every decade. This, being the 50th anniversary of the song being written, is a special decade, so we’re making the most of it with all the extra lights, and imagery. The show is great. It’s become an opportunity for the old gang to reconnect and a chance to welcome some younger folks to the larger family. I hope that familiar feeling of reunion is what people will take home after the gig."
