Touring Guthrie making T.O. appearance

Folk singer Arlo Guthrie will perform at 7 p.m. Sun., April 9 at the Kavli Theatre, Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza, 2100 E. Thousand Oaks Blvd.

On the heels of the sold-out Alice’s Restaurant 50th anniversary tour, Guthrie hits the road again for the Running Down the Road Tour, where he and his band will perform the best of his catalog from the late 1960s and early ’70s.

The tour will feature the most outstanding cuts from “Arlo” (1968), “Running Down the Road” (1969) and “Washington County” (1970).

Guthrie began touring with his father’s friend, Pete Seeger, in the late 1960s.

The two continued to perform together for the next 40 years, last appearing at Carnegie Hall in 2012.

Guthrie is best known for “Alice’s Restaurant,” released in 1967, and starred in the 1969 film named for the song.

He launched his own record company, Rising Son, in 1983. The label houses his complete catalog as well as albums by dad Woody Guthrie, other family members and other artists.

Guthrie released “Someday” in 1986, “Times Like These” in 2007 and “Tales of ’69” in 2009 in celebration of the 40th anniversary of Woodstock.

Tickets range from $41 to $66, with group discounts available, through Ticketmaster at (800) 745-3000 or ticketmaster.com, or through the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza box office.
