Arlo Guthrie & Pete Yarrow

When: Thu., June 8, 7:30 p.m. 2017

Singer-songwriter and political activist Victor Jara sang of peace, love and social justice — themes that were in sad contrast with his murder during the 1973 Chilean coup. The Resurrection of Victor Jara, a feature-length documentary written and produced by University of Vermont lecturer John Summa, memorializes Jara’s life and music and features interviews with his fellow folk luminaries, including Arlo Guthrie and Peter Yarrow. These two living legends — you know them for “Alice’s Restaurant” and “Puff, the Magic Dragon,” respectively — join forces for a double-bill concert benefiting the film. Catch the movie trailer in between sets.

Price: $10-60.
