The latest Arlo Guthrie news and press releases

Group W Bench Sessions

“Kid, I want you to go over and sit down on that bench that says Group W.”
Arlo at home this past summer (like the rest of us), got together with his band and recorded some sessions and collected archival videos. Some of the recordings are being referred to as the Group W Bench Sessions; a three part series named after the famous bench— the first session premieres Saturday, November 28th! Presented by Rising Son Records.

Gone Fishing

It’s been a great 50+ years of being a working entertainer, but I reached the difficult decision that touring and stage shows are no longer possible. That’s the short version. For the longer version continue reading…

As a folksinger, I never really thought much about getting older. It seemed to me that I could just continue year after year, decade after decade, singing and playing as I had done for most of my life. As the years went by, it got more difficult to keep touring, but I did it, mostly because I’d been doing it my entire life. It was the life I knew and loved.

December 1, 2019 – Carnegie Hall – Sold Out

Well, we did it. The last annual Thanksgiving concert at Carnegie Hall was Sold Out, and is now in the rearview mirror, and what a night it was. There were so many old friends there, most of whom I never even got a chance to see. I'm talking about people I actually know and love – friends from school days, family friends, relations – it was insane.

Take Me To Summer

We began 2019 in January playing a string of shows in Florida. They were all, if I say so myself, really good and a lot of fun. We headed northward into Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia and Maryland. Annapolis, MD was the farthest north we’ve been so far this year.
