With a few scattered gigs under our collective belts, the real road warrior leg on the "Guthrie Family Reunion" tour (summer 2012) is about to get underway. Hopefully the heat wave(s) spreading around the continent will be a forgotten memory and cooler winds will blow us across the USA and up into the Canadian Rockies back down thru the upper midwest. The summer part of the reunion ends at Ravinia just outside of Chicago in late August before we jump overseas to Denmark and the T√łnder Festival (one of our favorites). From Denmark we'll head in different directions while I roll thru Ireland for the beginning of "Here Comes The Kid," a solo tour run continuing until May 2013. However, there will be a small reunion reprise towards the end of November as we get ready for our annual Thanksgiving on the stage at Carnegie Hall. Pete Seeger will join us at Carnegie, but those fix will not be on sale until early Fall. Stay tuned for info.

Meanwhile we're gearing up for The Newport Folk Festival and the trek across country immediately following. I have to say, I've not had so much fun with the family before this. Everyone is a little older, better and more road worthy than we were the last time out together. There's not another bunch of folks I'd rather be with who are as funny, real and happier (generally) than our clan on the road.

My dad and mom had dreams of creating a large family that could travel around singing and entertaining everyone with real songs about real things. We're not only celebrating "Woody 100" we're living the dream of the family they never had a chance to realize. For us this is more than just another series of gigs. This is the culmination of generations working and playing that brings together a reunion of spirit, age and youth. I wouldn't miss this for the world.

I have to agree with your comments regarding the family thing. You all sounded great in Ocean City including the youngest one. Looking forward to Carnegie Hall. I never saw Pete in concert, something I really regret now. Also a couple weeks before Carnegie Hall will catch you do the "Here Comes The Kid" show in Morristown. Would love to meet and greet you with my wife, but just listening to you live is inspiring to me.

It really shows in the quality of every performance. Even the little ones run on stage when it is a song they are singing on. I am so glad I got to see it. Thank you very much :-)

Cheryl, I remember when you didn't even have an "internet computer," and now you're on a tablet. You're making me feel like a real dinosaur with my old desktop being the only way I can get on-line.

Yeah, I had to get on here at the library. Then in 1997 or 98, I got a Windows 3.1 puter and I was on Arlonet at home. I found my tablet for only $99 at Big Lots. If it weren't that cheap I wouldn't have been able to afford one.
