Posted on: July 20, 2011

In his first performances at the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra’s Marsh Symphony on the Prairie summer series, folk singer and songwriter Arlo Guthrie will join the ISO on July 22 and 23 at the Conner Prairie Amphitheater in Noblesville, Indiana. The performances, led by John Nardolillo, are part of Guthrie’s U.S. tour this summer and fall and will feature orchestral arrangements of Guthrie’s “City of New Orleans,” “Darkest Hour,” and “Last Train,” as well as new arrangements of American folk classics. The string trio Time for Three, the ISO’s ensemble-in-residence, will join Guthrie and the ISO to perform songs by Guthrie as well as his father, Woody Guthrie, and Lead Belly. Time for Three will also perform their own “Foxdown, “Wyoming 307,” “Forget About It,” and “Hymn” and arrangements of “Shenandoah” and “Orange Blossom Special.”
