Common Ground on the Hill: Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion Daughter of Arlo Guthrie and granddaughter of the iconic folk singer Woody Guthrie, Sarah Lee Guthrie continues the family music tradition. Sarah Lee and husband Johnny Irion have been celebrated for their lush, dreamy sound (American Songwriter magazine).
Nearly a decade after folk-rock duo Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion put out their first album together, the husband-and-wife pair feel like they’ve finally hit their stride on Wassaic Way, a collection of 11 new songs released in 2013 on Rte 8 Records. Produced by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy and Patrick Sansone at the Loft in Chicago, Wassaic Way finds Guthrie and Irion pushing further beyond the folky sound they established on 2005’s Exploration, their first studio LP. After Irion’s solo album Ex Tempore in 2007, the live album Folksong in 2009 and the children’s collection Go Waggaloo in 2009, the pair began expanding their sonic horizons on 2011’s Bright Examples, an album that drew praise from American Songwriter magazine for its “lush, dreamy sound.”
She is the daughter of Arlo Guthrie and the granddaughter of Woody Guthrie, he is the grandnephew of author John Steinbeck — together this husband and wife duo meld his love of rock and blues with her roots of folk and country to develop their own original southern rock sound.
