Y ou can get anything you want at Alice’s Restaurant — even an evening of music with the Guthrie family. The church that made folk music history 50 years ago in Arlo Guthrie’s hit song is now a community center and the site of an annual folk music series in the summers. And it serves dinner as well.
On a summer night you can here Grammy-winning bluesman, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Chris Thomas King, up from New Orleans, singing I’m an American Man, wry and soaring over a rising trumpet.
Chris Smither. Roan Yellowthorn. Emerging musicians and folk legends perform here from June to September, sometimes together. Seth Glier protests and laments in a driving tenor in a thunderstorm — Do the next right thing or the next thing right.
