Throughout his own career, Arlo Guthrie (born in 1947), has honored his late father, Woody Guthrie (1912-1967), in song as well as in life.

During last year’s centennial observance of Woody’s birthday, Arlo embarked on a new solo tour, titled “Here Comes The Kid,” which extends through 2013. This continues the celebration of Woody Guthrie’s immeasurable contributions to the landscape of American folk music, which includes songs like “This Land Is Your Land.”

Since childhood, Arlo was amazed by the creative genius of his father and his friends who would drop by: Leadbelly, Brownee McGee and Cisco Houston, to name a few. Not surprising, Arlo drew from those experiences and he, in turn, became a delineative figure for a new generation.

Arlo has long paid homage to his dad with his own renditions of Woody’s songs. Woody’s legacy is well defined in Arlo’s own works: in his wry, folksy humor; his political and social activism; and his rambling gift for storytelling.

During his solo concert at the Mondavi Center on Friday, April 19, at 8 p.m., Arlo Guthrie will honor the enduring commitment of Woody Guthrie with a night of music and stories confirming that the folk tradition of Woody is alive and well.

“(Woody) really was determined to be a free thinker,” Arlo Guthrie told an interviewer last year. “To believe what he wanted to believe, or what he thought was important, to say what he had to say without you getting the feeling that he’s selling you something.

“To me, these were very important lessons. He wrote songs about things that were going on, songs about stuff that had already happened, songs about what he thought ought to happen.”

Tickets are $35-$58 general, $17.50-$29 for students, available at www.mondaviarts.org or 530-754-2787.
