"Here Come the Kids" 100th Birthday of Woody Guthrie
Sponsored by Mediation Works, Mountain West Bank, and Mosaic Architecture
With the Support of Paul G. Allen Family Foundation
Helena Middle School Auditorium
Throughout his own career, Arlo Guthrie has honored his father in song as well as in life. With the centennial of Woody's 100th birthday approaching, Arlo is embarking on his new solo tour 'Here Comes the Kid' to continue the celebration of Woody Guthrie's immeasurable contributions to the landscape of American folk music. Arlo's exceptional solo shows are unique and inspiring experiences that provide an intimacy with the audience that is unparalleled. This unforgettable night will include music and stories from the first family of folk, with personal reminiscences of Arlo's childhood in the company of musical greats like Leadbelly, Brownie McGhee, Cisco Houston, and of course, Woody himself. In celebrating this living legacy of American music, Arlo takes what his Dad started, and makes it his own.

Morgan Thorson describing her dance work, "YOU, a dance about us and you, ensemble and viewers, made for everyone in the room. It composes itself from our experience as an ensemble—things we do to move together including joining, counting, talking, traveling, technique, giving up, conventions, systems, practice, leaving, seeing and being seen, communicating and dancing. We keep it simple. We peek around corners to see you and each other. We put our guts into the systems that surround us. We dance together and we dance with the walls that contain us. We elicit recognition of each other, and we love that potential in you. Recognition looks good on everyone. And so back and forth it goes, forever."
