what more can one ask for? Arlo Guthrie, music, and great vibes! The food was good, and I went to the Spring Revival, which raises money for the Guthrie Foundation. They do good work for the community so don't miss out on the Troubadour series this summer!

It's always a pleasure to receive positive reviews... We've just begun this summers (2014) series of music and art with the addition or a real chef in our kitchen. Not doubt we'll keep tweaking the menu until it settles in to something worth coming back for again and again. And I'm thrilled that I finally figure out how to respond... More

Recently we spent a month in the Great Barrington area. We rented a home and then hiked and visited the history and farmer’s markets in the area. We went to the Guthrie Center one evening when they had a music concert. It was $5 per person at the door, and had refreshments for sale. It started at 8 and had... More

You can get a light meal and then enjoy the performance with a wonderful acoustic experience (little amplification of sounds).

Finally made it there after many years of wanting to go. We went to see my favorite band. The place was great. Smal menu, but good stuff! I can't wait to go again!

Saw Arlo in concert earlier this year and checked out the Guthrie Center online so we wanted to stop by while we were in the area. Now I'm really bummed that we missed the hootenanny after reading a previous post. Nice people, good vibe, and worthy mission. A must stop to educate future generations.

Perfect dose of the 60's updated and refreshed with a tidy selection of food and beverages for dinner. We have been enjoying this venue for years, watching it become more polished...but not too much.

Yep! That is what it is called and they happen on Thursday nights. Lots of fun if you enjoy music of the 60s and 70s. We brought two families and sang for hours. At the end of every hootenanny, the entire group joins in and sings This Land is Your Land, This land is My Land! Fun! I have never... More

For a $5.00 donation you can get yourself a great cup of coffee or tea, the cream is behind you in the fridge, and then listen to whomever feels like showing up play whatever instrument at whatever level they can play. There is a nice vibe in this place. They serve lunch on Wednesday (I think) and the smiles and... More

A terrific place to know and discover for its tradition , its goals and the folk music concerts. On July 14 It was Tom Chapin, a legend by himself. Food is served but let s not mention it... also I had to leave at mid time due to the lack of air conditioning on that very hot day....hopefully enough money... More
