Guthrie & Seeger in Concert at Carnegie Hall

ARLO GUTHRIE AND PETE SEEGER (Saturday) This annual Thanksgiving concert features two of folk music’s most lovable torch-bearers: Arlo Guthrie’s discography is boisterous, organic and playful, while Pete Seeger, now 89, plays warm, sagacious folk songs. The pair, who have toured together on and off since 1975 (Arlo’s father, Woody Guthrie, was a contemporary and friend of Seeger’s), will be joined onstage by members of their families. At 8 p.m., Stern Auditorium, Perelman Stage, Carnegie Hall, (212) 247-7800, carnegiehall.org; $35 to $65.

Pete Seeger and Tao Rodriguez-Seeger Concert November 15

Pete Seeger and Tao Rodriguez-Seeger
November 15. The Ritz Theater, in cooperation with La Bella Guitar Strings and the Bardavon, continue its Tom Humphrey Guitar Series in honor of the famed Hudson Valley-based luthier who passed away earlier this year. The concerts, which benefit the restoration of the historic Ritz, were initiated by Humphrey himself just two months before his death. Humphrey’s designs and building techniques revolutionized the classical guitar and legend has it he created his best-known model, the Millennium, after the idea came to him in a dream. To raise the roof, musical legend Pete Seeger (who just released a new CD, At 89, on Appleseed Records) will be joined by his grandson, Tao Rodriguez-Seeger, on guitar, banjo, harmonica, and vocals. All tickets include a post-concert reception with the artists, thanks to co-sponsorship from the Safe Harbor housing and arts foundation. 8pm. $25. Newburgh. (845) 562-6940; www.safe-harbors.org.
