[FOLK] In a way, Arlo Guthrie’s artistic identity was defined from the start by loss. He debuted with his signature shaggy-dog classic, “Alice’s Restaurant,” in 1967—the same year Huntington’s disease claimed dad Woody’s life—and had to reckon with the folk legend’s legacy throughout his career’s first decades. But the last two years have seen the passing of Guthrie’s wife of 43 years, Jackie, and more recently, that of Pete Seeger, his father’s fellow traveler who became Arlo’s own longtime musical compatriot. So the mood may be more wistful than usual at Guthrie’s current performances. Then again, Guthrie’s wryly sunny demeanor should easily outshine any dark clouds. And imagining his liberal fan base reckoning with Guthrie’s current libertarian leanings provides its own comic relief—though one hopes this celebrated son’s Ron Paul boosterism doesn’t sympathetically translate to support of Rand.
