Arlo’s exceptional solo shows are a unique and inspiring experience providing an intimacy with the audience that is unparalleled. Here Comes the Kid will run nationwide in select venues, and will celebrate the legacy of Guthrie’s father in a manner to make any parent proud: to take what his dad started, and make it his own. Since childhood, Arlo was amazed by the creative genius of his father and his friends, not surprising, Arlo drew from those experiences and he in turn became a delineative figure for a new generation. Arlo has long paid homage to his dad with his own renditions of Woody’s songs, but of equal importance – Woody’s legacy is well defined in Arlo’s own works: in his humor, his political and social activism, and his undeniable gift for storytelling.
