The son of famous singer Woody Guthrie, Arlo Guthrie is perhaps most known for his album “Alice’s Restaurant,” which was released in 1967. The title song, an 18-minute satirical musical monologue, helped to spark social consciousness and activism in the 1960s. Over his career spanning five decades, Guthrie has toured throughout North America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia, earning him a wide following.
Guthrie’s Leach Theatre performance is a stop on his “The Alice’s Restaurant 50th Anniversary Tour.” The performance is sponsored in part by Baymont Inn and Suites, Missouri S&T public radio station KMST, KXMO Radio and Digity Companies LLC.
