A Family Tradition, Guthrie Style

I had the pleasure of getting to know Johnny Irion and Sarah Lee Guthrie a little bit during the seven years they lived here in South Carolina, and their oldest daughter, born during that time, is about the same age as my oldest girl, so when proud papa Johnny sent me the following clip from a recent show, I had to share.

He and Sarah Lee are raising up the girls in true musician fashion, on stage from the start, and as you’ll see in this segment that includesJohnny backing up Olivia, cousin Jacklyn, and a cameo from baby sister Sophie, they’re pretty comfortable behind a microphone.

Smithsonian Folkways will be issuing a family music album featuring Sarah, Johnny, and their kids, cousins, and other extended family members this November–You’ll hear a couple of the songs from the album in this video.
