Folk music icon Arlo Guthrie is a legendary artist who shares timeless stories and unforgettable classic songs as he carries on the Guthrie family legacy. With his singular voice as both a singer-songwriter and social commentator, he has maintained a dedicated fan base that spans the globe. A celebrated figure in American music, Arlo connects with communities far and wide leaving a lasting impression of hope and inspiration. His artistic ventures help bridge an often-divided world through his powerful spirit of song, and his inimitable musical ingenuity forges to new creative heights as he continues to entertain generations. Arlo Guthrie left the major record label system in 1983 to pursue life as a truly independent artist, bringing his thriving career into the hands of a family-run business with the launch of his own label Rising Son Records. Currently operated by daughters Annie and Cathy Guthrie, Rising Son debuted with the release of Arlo's Someday (1986). Since its inception, Rising Son has served as a family label housing Arlo's complete catalogue as well as albums by Woody Guthrie and family, Pete Seeger & Arlo Guthrie, Sarah Lee Guthrie & Johnny Irion (Rt. 8 Records), Abe Guthrie and his band Xavier, Folk Uke (Cathy Guthrie and Amy Nelson, daughter of Willie Nelson), plus the soundtrack to Woody Guthrie Hard Travelin'. In Times Like These (2007), one of Rising Son's most recent releases, features Arlo alongside the University of Kentucky Symphony Orchestra. The album marks the culmination of his work with 27 different symphony orchestras and more than 40 live concerts. His show at Boston Symphony Hall, conducted by Keith Lockhart, was recorded and aired on PBS's Evening at the Pops. In 2001, the Fourth of July celebration with the Pops was broadcasted live by A&E. A compelling collection of original songs and select American classics performed by Arlo and the University of Kentucky Symphony Orchestra, In Times Like These was released on vinyl in the fall of 2009.
