Guthrie recently graced the stage of Nashville's Music City Winery
for a sold out 3 night run starting the 2nd
leg of the 50th anniversary Alice's Restaurant tour.
to describe this show? The words that immediately come to mind to are
“beautiful, historical, and emotionally moving”.
as in the songs both he and his daughter Sarah Lee sang, the music
that his band made backing him up, even the stage lighting. A
magical moment that made the heart smile.
in the sense that not just Arlo but his family have written songs
that define an era in American history. From the early days when
Woody and his brother Jack performed as the “Beverly Hillbillies”.
And who among us did not sing “This Land is Your Land” in school.
If there was one single song the defined the irony and turmoil that
were the 1960's it would be “Alice's Restaurant”. Or how an
invitation from Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee to open for them in
California led to him moving to Malibu to live with family friend
“Rambing” Jack Elliot. His Mom was wanting him to have a safe,
secure place to live in the crazy world of California of the 60's.
But as he explained to us with a smile, Arlo knew far more about
Rambling Jack than she did. So he “gave in” and said “if he had
too".... An event which led to the emotionally moving part. How Rambling Jack,
a rodeo fan, took Arlo to the Malibu rodeo parade where.....
moving”....If there was a dry eye there when Arlo reminisced and
paid tribute to his late wife Jackie I would be surprised. You could
tell their love, their family, their life together for 43 years were
so special. The story he told of there first meeting...her as a
“beautiful vision riding in a rodeo parade in Malibu” and how he
was smitten from that moment on.
stories he told of their life together was a moment he shared that will
not be forgotten. We should all be so blessed to have that kind of
love in our lives.
