Arlo Guthrie & Taj Mahal: Two Musical Legends Live

New Jersey Performing Arts Center – Prudential Hall
1 Center Street
Newark, NJ
8:00pm

See two musical legends on one stage: folk music icon Arlo Guthrie and southern country and blues artist Taj Mahal. When Arlo Guthrie was arrested on Thanksgiving Day 1965 for littering, there’s no way he could’ve known the incident would inspire one of the definitive counterculture anthems of the ’60s. But after he was kept out of the Vietnam draft because of the arrest, Guthrie, the son of folk hero Woody Guthrie, spun the ironic incident into an increasingly absurd 18-minute satirical talking-blues song called Alice’s Restaurant Massacree.  Fifty years later, it remains one of the strangest popular songs of all time – and just as wryly hilarious as ever. In a career spanning nearly five decades, blues vocalist, musician and composer Taj Mahal has sold millions of albums, won two Grammy Awards and earned the respect of his peers as one of the most prominent and influential R&B and roots musicians of his era. A Blues Hall of Fame member and world-music pioneer, Taj Mahal has toured with Ry Cooder and, more recently, Bonnie Raitt, and he’s recorded music alongside Ben Harper, Jack Johnson and Ziggy Marley, among many others. Hear City of New Orleans, Statesboro Blues,  and more at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center.
