Donning the mantle

 

continued

lust for more, still more, twangy songs. Guthrie - daughter, of course, to Arlo, and granddaughter to Woody - grew up perhaps too sensitive to the mantle of legendhood hovering nearby, and didn't touch music until she was eighteen. "I knew that as soon as I picked up a guitar it was all over," said Guthrie in a radio interview last month. "My first show would be a couple hundred people there - which was what happened. But I wasn't ready for that till I was eighteen." In California she met South Carolina singer-songwriter Irion ("EYE-ree-un"). He encouraged her music, they sang together, they fell in love, they got married. Today, seven years later, they're playing 180 dates a year, all over the country. They were in London last month. Each has released a solo album, and Exploration is their first CD as a couple; Irion penned most of the songs, including the opener, "In Lieu of Flowers" - a sad and simple country song.
