DNA strands in grinning lineage of American folk, the Guthrie Girls have been enlivening hump-day nights at South Austin honky-dive Sam’s Town Point. Daughters of Arlo and granddaughters of Woody, Sarah Lee strums guitar and sings, while sister Kathy (of Folk Uke fame) supplements delightfully on the mic. Their sweet singing, evidenced by a cover of Gordon Lightfoot’s “Sundown,” is only upstaged by the smiling vibe they cultivate. Fronting a cowboy/hippie/bar-band, grandpa’s “I Ain’t Got No Home in This World Anymore” becomes two-step dance fodder, while “Hobo’s Lullaby” emits momentous compassion.
