Arlo Guthrie was born with a guitar in one hand and a harmonica in the other. As the eldest son of America's most beloved singer/writer/philosopher, Woody Guthrie, and Marjorie Mazia Guthrie, a professional dancer, Arlo grew up surrounded by dancers and musicians, all of whom were significant influences on his musical career.
Arlo Guthrie's career exploded in 1967 with the release of Alice’s Restaurant, whose title song was a hilarious account of actual events that took place in 1965. The song premiered at the Newport Folk Festival and helped foster a new commitment among the '60s generation to social consciousness and activism.
Fifty years after the historic events that launched him to reluctant celebrity, Arlo brings to the stage “The Alice’s Restaurant Massacree” in its entirety, along with many favorites from his catalog.
Presented at 7:30 p.m. in the Leach Theatre, on the campus of Missouri University of Science and Technology. Tickets: $40; youth, $30.

To kick off the 2015 season of the Missouri State Archives’ Thursday Evening Speakers Series, the River Ridge String Band will once again take center stage. This musically versatile group, consisting of John Cunning, Charlie Nelson and the husband and wife duo of Cliff and Molly White, combine the hammered dulcimer, mandolin, guitar, banjo, accordion, vocals and folk percussion instruments to produce an eclectic mix of traditional Celtic music and old-time fiddle tunes, as well as traditional and modern folk songs.
Many of the jigs, reels and hornpipes they perform were part of country-dances in the British Isles and the old-time barn dances of Appalachia and the Ozarks. Today, these “fiddle tunes” are still played at traditional square dances and are the mainstay for a modern form of American folk dance known as contra dancing. Dipping into, and sometimes stirring up, all of these traditions, the River Ridge String Band puts on an enjoyable show for all ages!
