Sarah Lee Guthrie’s lineage is undeniable. But if you close your eyes and forget that her last name is synonymous with the river-legacy of a widening current of American folk music, you’d still be drawn to the clarity and soul behind her voice. There is a gentle urgency to her interpretations of the songs she sings and the classic music of her heritage. It flows from the continuity of her family, her vital artistic life today and the river of songs that have guided her to where she now stands. 

It’s been hinted at since she first stepped on the stages of Wolf Trap and Carnegie Hall as a teenager in 1993 singing Pete Seeger’s “Sailin’ Down My Golden River” for sold-out audiences. But it was later, when she met her husband, Johnny Irion, grandnephew of Woody Guthrie’s literary kindred spirit, John Steinbeck, that she began to embrace her birthright and her inherent gifts. 

Sarah Lee Guthrie now ventures on a road that leads back to the rich culture of her family running through the warmth of her own bloodlines. This is rare opportunity to witness the growth of one of America’s finest young folk singers and Live in Los Alamos is proud to have been chosen to host her northern New Mexico appearance. 

Guthrie will play at Fuller Lodge on Wednesday, April 26. Bathtub Row will make beer and wine available when doors open at 6:00 p.m. (music begins at 7:00 p.m.) and Pig & Fig owner Laura Crucet has been kind enough to make sure a dinner is available at the show for those who want to make it a real night out in Los Alamos. Attendees can order dinner ahead of the show date to be delivered to Fuller when doors open at 6:00 (see for details). Tickets for the show can be purchased from that same website for $28.50, or for $25 at Los Alamos Schools Credit Union (cash or check only).
