SARAH LEE GUTHRIE & JOHNNY IRION
Sunday May 4th, 2008
Before we closed KOOL BEANZ Coffeehouse 6yrs ago we were going to have SARAH LEE GUTHRIE (yes, Arlo's daughter & Woody's granddaughter) perform In Concert for us, but she had to bow out due her being pregnant at gig time.
Well, now she has a wonderful daughter Olivia, and a great (and talented) husband JOHNNY IRION, and I have the pleasure to announce that we are finally bringing them to Brevard - NEXT WEEK! As far as I know, Sarah Lee (whose parents have a home in Sebastian) and Johnny have not yet been presented in concert in our area since her solo debut CD in 2001.
The wonderful folks over at the APPLESEED HEALTH FOODS (Rene & Kurt) and I will present Sarah & Johnny at Appleseed on Sunday May 4th! This is the exciting debut for Live Music at the Appleseed. Rene and Kurt plan to present a healthy buffet prior to the show, and some dessert items after the gig (included in the ticket price). I'm also pleased to report that Kurt (aka Hootie) with members of his old band BIG RED & THE BUS will perform a short set to open the show.

Last year I had to pleasure of interviewing Sarah Lee, and Arlo on my Acoustic Record Radio Show. Following that interview Arlo invited "Java" Jen & I to see the 'Guthrie Family Legacy' Tour in West Palm at the Kravitz Center....wow, what a night! I love Arlo in concert and have seen him a half dozen times, but the real treat that night was Sarah Lee & Johnny (and little Olivia) as 4 generations of Guthrie shared the stage (they played a snip of a recently found recording of Woody in concert too). This will be a kool night, hope to see you all there...or as many as we can fit!
(The show is limited to 60 seats, so it's best to get them early! )

Below are a few MP3s in case you are not familiar with Sarah & Johnny. First the title track from their disc Exploration, then "Lazy Tongue" from Sarah Lee's first solo disc, you'll hear a snip from my interview with Sarah last year, talking about one of my favorite songs they do - Johnny's "Brush You Teeth Blues #56", and then that track from Johnny's recent solo disc. Below that is a live YouTube clip of them performing "Holdin' Back" on television...enjoy.
