Arlo Guthrie’s Annual Thanksgiving Concert

Arlo Guthrie is back on the road following the death of his wife. In a message Guthrie says, “I’ve got a couple / few gigs under my belt now since I got back on the road. There were so many notes and letters from everyone that it has been fairly overwhelming. What stood out was how many of our friends or people we work with have gone thru or are now going thru the same thing – the loss of someone dear. It is staggeringly real when hundreds and thousands of folks write in and share their lives in such an honest way – no one selling anything – Just real people going thru life trying to keep it real. So this little note is simply to let you know how grateful we are to everyone for taking the time to check-in. I’ll get back in some way or other, but there’s no way to answer everyone individually. It would take another lifetime. And now I’m just trying to get used to the life I have left. Time to make the doughnuts. I just need time to eat ‘em.”

Of particular note, on November 24 Guthrie will host his annual Thanksgiving Concert at New York’s Carnegie Hall. The show will include performances by Guthrie, Pete Seeger and The Guthrie Family Reunion (members of Arlo’s immediate and extended family). Guthrie will perform at Plymouth, NH’s The Flying Monkey
tomorrow.

“But we can still love them. we can love them completely without understanding….Eventually all things merge into one….. and a river runs through it.” You’ll cross that river in time, as will I , and we will become whole again. And they are still here, they are just on the other side, knowing that we will wade over when it is time. I am very sorry for your loss , but happy to hear that you are on the road again (I use other people’s lyrics even when I don’t mean to!). Hope you are able to enjoy a hearty Thanksgiving with your loved ones on this side of the river and I’m sure the Carnegie show will be fabulous! I don’t think Pete is EVER going to cross that river! You and your music are very much a part of my life (and, it goes without mentioning at Thanksgiving) and I am sincerely saddened by your (temporary) loss…..but I do still question how you happened to come up with the Motorcycle song. Happy Thanksgiving!
