Arlo Guthrie to perform at the Avalon

Arlo Guthrie, son of folk music icon Woody Guthrie, performs in Grand Junction at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 20, at the Avalon Theatre, 645 Main St.

Tickets are $30.

Arlo, a multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter, often sings songs of protest as his famous father did, his most memorable being “Alice’s Restaurant.”

His latest album, “32 Cents,” is a collection of Woody’s songs. It was released in 2008 but originally recorded 10 years ago with The Dilliards and was supposed to coincide with his father’s face on a 32-cent postage stamp.

“The one thing he did that never goes out of style is that, in his songs and in his books and in his life, he really tried to give people the feeling of the value they have as an individual, and not to lose sight of that,” Arlo said about his father in a recent interview with The Oklahoman/News at

Arlo is considered by many to be a natural storyteller.

On top of Arlo’s musical contributions, he has acted in TV roles, written for a popular newsletter, and authored an award-winning children’s book, “Mooses Come Walking.”
