Thread Name: Dirty Linen's Guthrie Family article
Subject: RE: Dirty Linen's Guthrie Family article
I'm with you Guest - I've always enjoyed Arlo for being Arlo. I can't remember though who I was listening to first - Arlo or Woody. I guess it would be Woody since I remember singing "This Land" and some of his children's songs when I was in grade school, a few years before Arlo emptied the garbage on that fateful Thanksgiving day!

Incidently, this year marks the 90th anniversary of Woody's birth. (I haven't read the Dirty Linen article yet, but I assume that is one of the reason's they chose to run the article.) Later this year Arlo will be performing some concerts with Pete Seeger, The Dillards (who will be on the 32 Cents CD) and other family and friends. I know they will be at the NJPAC and Carnegie Hall in November, but I assume that there will be other celebrations planned.
