The Guthrie Family is producing a new series at the Guthrie Center. The Talkin’ Series will feature a line-up of folks who will join them for 4 Wednesday’s in August. In addition to the music, they will have discussion with special guests and Q&A opportunities from the audience with Arlo Guthrie as the host!

Arlo’s daughter, Sarah Lee Guthrie will be on one on the panels and helped put this all together and she joins us.
