Singer-songwriter and social commentator Guthrie carries
on the legacy created by his father, Woody, with classic songs and timeless
stories. His recent tour, “Here Comes The Kids,” includes his son, Abe, on
keyboards and vocals, and focuses on the Woody Guthrie centennial.
Guthrie’s first public performance was at age 13. He
began touring with his father’s friend, Pete Seeger, in the late 1960s. The two
continued to perform together for the next 40 years, last performing at
Carnegie Hall in New York in November 2012. Guthrie is best known for “Alice’s
Restaurant,” released in 1967, and starred in the 1969 film named for the song.
He launched his own record company, Rising Son, in 1983,
and the label houses his complete catalog as well as albums by Woody Guthrie,
other family members and several other artists. Guthrie released “Someday” in
1986, “Times Like These” in 2007 and “Tales of ‘69” in 2009 in celebration of
the 40th anniversary of Woodstock.
Guthrie is also involved in several philanthropic
projects, including The Guthrie Foundation, an educational organization that
addresses the environment, health care, cultural preservation and educational
exchange; and The Guthrie Center, an interfaith church foundation for local and
international services. He was named an American Society of Composers, Authors
and Publishers Foundation Champion in 2009 for demonstrating exceptional
efforts in humanitarianism. More information may be found at www.risingsonrecords.com.
