BCT Presents
Arlo Guthrie
"Alice's Restaurant" Tour
Sunday, November 11, 2018 at 7:30PM

Buskirk-Chumley Theater
114 E. Kirkwood Ave.
Bloomington, IN 47408


Arlo Guthrie, eldest son of America’s most beloved singer/writer/philosopher Woody Guthrie, is an artist of international stature. His career exploded in 1967 with the release of Alice’s Restaurant, whose title song helped to foster an entire generation’s commitment to social consciousness and activism. In 1992, Guthrie was able to purchase the old Trinity Church that helped to inspire the song. Now called The Guthrie Center, it houses a non-profit educational organization.

Mingling classically styled folk songs with clever storytelling is Guthrie’s trademark. In addition to broad accomplishments as a musician – playing the piano, six- and twelve-string guitars, harmonica, and a dozen other instruments – Guthrie is a natural-born storyteller, a skill he loves to share with his fans.

This show will be a family affair, including performances by his son and daughter. Guthrie will be supported by a small band and the performance will include clips and stories from the film Alice’s Restaurant, in addition to songs from the soundtrack.

Doors will open at 7pm for this reserved seating show.
