The Guthrie family lineage reads like a passage from The Iliad: Olivia, daughter of Sarah Lee, sister of Abe, brother of Cathy and Annie, daughters of Arlo, son of Woody. The entire clan (minus the patriarch, who died in 1967) will be on deck for Guthrie Family Rides Again, an annual country/folk event that is less a concert and more a hootenanny; all the Guthries trade instruments, sing songs, and tell stories (Arlo is particularly fond of the Woodstock anecdotes) with a wonderful familial intimacy that’s perfect for Thanksgiving.
