Featuring Mustard’s Retreat
Mustard’s Retreat has been delighting audiences by telling stories for 40 years- they are witty, insightful, fun, and profound, as well as accomplished songwriters and musician ( guitars, dulcimer, electric bass, mandolin, harmonica, pennywhistle). In addition to being raconteurs and storytellers, they will give you things to laugh about for days to come and remember for years. Tales of stupid frogs, wandering cadavers, haunted bridges and techo-nerds, memories of small towns and high school, first loves and last…and places we’ve been or maybe just dreamed of.

The father of the American protest song, Woody Guthrie hoped one day to have enough kids to form a family band to travel the country and sing songs to the people. The Re:Generation Tour realizes Woody’s dream through the inspiring work of Arlo Guthrie and his children Sarah Lee Guthrie and Abe Guthrie.
Woody built a legacy of activism that the Guthrie family continues to preserve with their leading voices in the current revolution against oppression and injustice. The Re:Generation Tour gives voice to the common folk with their characteristic honesty and humor through the power of community and song. Arlo and family aspire to represent hope for working families across this great nation.
“The road continues to beckon and the kids, with kids of their own, are hearing the call of their own thoughts. Onward!” –Arlo
In 1967 at the age of 19, Arlo took up the torch from his father Woody when his anti-war classic “Alice’s Restaurant Massacree” became an international hit. He’s been on the road ever since, with his son Abe joining his band in the ‘80s as the musical director and keyboardist. Sarah Lee, a singer-songwriter with a lauded career in her own right, has been releasing celebrated original music for two decades.
