Arlo Guthrie Brings His Re:Generation Tour to Grunin Center in Toms River

Arlo Guthrie Brings His Re:Generation Tour to Grunin Center in Toms River(TOMS RIVER, NJ) -- Known to generations as a prolific songwriter, social commentator, master storyteller, actor, and activist, Arlo Guthrie brings his Re:Generation Tour to the Grunin Center Main Stage at Ocean County College on Thursday, November 9 at 7:30 p.m., College Drive, Toms River, NJ. Tickets range from $50-$59.

The father of the American protest song, Woody Guthrie hoped one day to have enough kids to form a family band to travel the country and sing songs to the people. The Re: Generation Tour realizes Woody’s dream through the inspiring work of his son Arlo Guthrie and Arlo’s children Sarah Lee Guthrie and Abe Guthrie.

Woody built a legacy of activism that the Guthrie family continues to preserve with its leading voices in the current revolution against oppression and injustice. Arlo Guthrie’s Re: Generation Tour gives voice to the common folk with their characteristic honesty and humor through the power of community and song. Arlo and family aspire to represent hope for working families across this great nation.

In 1967 at the age of 19, Arlo took up the torch from his father Woody when his antiwar classic “Alice’s Restaurant Massacree” became an international hit. He’s been on the road ever since, with his son Abe joining his band in the 1980s as the musical director and keyboardist. Sarah Lee, a singer-songwriter with a lauded career in her own right, has been releasing celebrated original music for two decades.

Inspired by his parents’ activism, Guthrie established The Guthrie Center, named for his parents; it is a not-for-profit interfaith church foundation dedicated to providing a wide range of local and international services.  In addition, The Guthrie Foundation is a separate not-for-profit educational organization that addresses issues such as the environment, health care, cultural preservation, and educational exchange.
