Iconic singer-songwriter and political activist Arlo Guthrie will resume his extensive touring efforts after the holidays for the Lost World Tour 2009. Guthrie’s schedule is currently scheduled to begin January 17 with a concert at Cypress Avenue in Cork, IRE, and wrap with his August 27-30 performances at the Tønder Music Festival in Tønder, DEN.

Son of folk legend Woody Guthrie, the musician currently has 40 concerts booked for North America, from February 12-13 at The American Theater in Hampton, VA, to July 3-5 at The Church in Housatonic, MA. The coast-to-coast circuit also includes two-night stands on March 3-4 at The Lyric Theatre in Stuart, FL, on March 11-12 at The Manship Theatre in Baton Rouge, LA, on March 27-28 at Cache Valley center for the Arts in Logan, UT, and on May 13-14 at The Ark in Ann Arbor, MI.

Four shows in Ontario, Canada, are also set for the North American tour, from a May 8 session at The Rose Theatre in Brampton through a May 11 gig at The Richmond Hill Centre in Richmond. Ticket onsale information and prices for the entire tour can be found on Guthrie’s official Web site.

The three-night run in Housatonic, MA, will feature Guthrie at The Church, a location made famous in his 1967 debut album’s title song, “Alice’s Restaurant.” The folk singer has since purchased the property and converted it into the Guthrie Center, which now serves as an interfaith meeting place and center for a variety of local and international service programs.
