About Arlo Guthrie
was born in Brooklyn, New York, where he was influenced early on in life by creative types. His mother was a dancer, and his
father was a folk musician. Citing Pete Seeger, Ronnie Gilbert, Leadbelly, and Cisco Houston as some of his influences, it
seemed only natural that he too would go on to pursue music professionally. Arlo gave his first performance at just age 13
in 1961, and continued to delve into the world of music from that point on. During the years that followed, Arlo and his father's
friend, Pete Seeger, toured together. In fact, they played over a dozen shows with each other nearly every year for about
40 years straight, until 2012.
As a longtime activist and musician, Arlo Guthrie is best known for his song, "Alice's
Restaurant," which was an 18 minute, talking blues song which became very popular with the counterculture movement during
the late 60s. The song enjoyed heavy airplay on college radio stations, and helped to define a mindset at the time that was
growing frustrated with the social and political climate. Besides this famous song, Arlo Guthrie had trouble getting airplay
due to his songs being deemed too long or too controversial. In spite of this, he was still able to become a prominent figure
during this tumultuous time. He still managed to tour all over the world, including North America, Europe, Asia, Africa and
Australia, dazzling audiences with his remarkable musical talent. He did, however, get a top 40 hit with his cover of Steve
Goodman's "City of New Orleans," which was included on his 1972 album, "Hobo's Lullaby." In addition, his 1976 album "Amigo"
won critical praise. Since his debut in the 60s, Arlo Guthrie has shared the stage with a variety of musical acts, including
the likes of Pete Seeger, Cyril Neville, Emmylou Harris, Willie Nelson, Josh Ritter, David Bromberg, and many more.
