City of New Orleans – A Classic Arlo Guthrie Rendition

Posted on

Arlo Guthrie was born and bred a musician. The son of America’s most beloved singer, songwriter and philosopher, Woody Guthrie, he grew up among America’s most celebrated folk-roots musicians. Arlo learned something from everyone, developed his own musical style, and became a revered performer and political-social commentator. After nearly five decades on the music scene, he’s more relevant in today’s world than he ever was, putting on great shows with meaningful commentary for audiences lucky enough to see him live. Among the many familiar tunes we should expect to hear him play at Mariposa Folk Festival 2013 is his definitive rendition of Steve Goodman’s City of New Orleans. Here he is performing that classic song at the Americana Music Association Awards in the Ryman Auditorium, Nashville, Tennessee.
