THE ROOTS AGENCY AND 1ST MARK ARTISTS JOIN FORCES IN BOOKING FOR ARLO GUTHRIE
The Roots Agency has formed a new strategic alliance with 1st Mark Artists Management to partner in booking America’s beloved troubadour, Arlo Guthrie. “We’ve been working with Mark Smith for 17 years,” says Roots founder, Tim Drake. “This new arrangement is just the natural progression of advancing and formalizing that relationship with the goal of better serving our clients.” Mark Smith of 1st Mark Artists reiterated, saying, “This partnership will enhance and strengthen our ability to represent Arlo and to service our buyers.”
Concert dates in 2018-2019 for Arlo Guthrie’s Back By Popular Demand Tour coincide with the 50th anniversary of the movie, Alice’s Restaurant. Demand from fans pushed Arlo to bring back the Alice’s Restaurant Massacree earlier than he’d planned. The tour will be primarily scheduled at performing arts centers and music festivals in North America, Europe and Australia. There will a PBS pledge show tie-in with select markets.
