The Guthrie Center at the Old Trinity Church

Founded by Arlo Guthrie to honor the legacy of his parents, Woody Guthrie and Marjorie Mazia-Guthrie, the Guthrie Foundation seeks to cultivate cultural preservation, promote educational achievement and foster community outreach to meet the ongoing needs of the community.

The Guthrie Center was founded by Arlo to offer interfaith services and spiritual exchange. Together, the Foundation and the Center bring individuals together for cultural, educational, and spiritual exchange. They are dedicated to meeting the ongoing needs of the community by working together with other non-profit agencies to serve those in need. In doing so we hope to create an environment where individuals can come together to cultivate a deeper awareness of culture, humanity and the environment of which we are all a part.


By popular demand, the Guthrie Center will extend the Troubadour Series, beginning in 2018, to include performances through September! We are adding addtional performances this Fall, 2017, in anticipation of this change.

We are excited to welcome a super band out of Europe, “Old Salt”, on Friday, October 6, and Eric Anderson on Saturday, October 7! Call us at (413) 528-1955 for reservations and information.

We hope you’ll join us to celebrate the source of inspiration behind everything we do. Music! Play it forward!
