Guthrie to perform at Fargo Theatre

Folk music icon Arlo Guthrie will perform on May 9 at the Fargo Theatre.

Guthrie is a legendary artist who shares timeless stories and classic songs as he carries on the Guthrie family legacy. With his voice as a singer-songwriter and social commentator, he has maintained a dedicated fan base that spans the globe.

Guthrie left the major record label system in 1983 to pursue life as an independent artist, bringing his thriving career into the hands of a family-run business with the launch of his own label, Rising Son Records. Currently operated by daughters Annie and Cathy Guthrie, Rising Son debuted with the release of Arlo’s “Someday” (1986). Since its inception, Rising Son has served as a family label housing Arlo Guthrie’s complete catalogue as well as albums by Woody Guthrie and family, Pete Seeger and Arlo Guthrie, Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion (Rt. 8 Records), Abe Guthrie and his band Xavier, Folk Uke (Cathy Guthrie and Amy Nelson, daughter of Willie Nelson), plus the soundtrack to Woody Guthrie Hard Travelin’.

The show begins at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets to “An Evening with Arlo Guthrie” go on sale Friday, Feb. 28. They are $36.50 for all ages (reserved seating) and are available at, at the Tickets300 box office, 300 Broadway, Fargo, or by calling (866) 300-8300. Additional fees may apply.

The Fargo Theatre is located at 314 Broadway N, Fargo.
