Arlo Guthrie

About Arlo Guthrie

With the legendary folk singer and activist Woody Guthrie for a father, Arlo Guthrie had some big shoes to fill. It is a testament to the younger Guthrie's talent and charisma that he made a name for himself as a beloved folk singer in his own right and will most likely be remembered as a generational spokesperson for years to come. His 1967 anti-Vietnam song "Alice's Restaurant Massacree" became radio fodder, and was even made into a cult film. Guthrie performed at Woodstock, and had a top-20 hit in 1972 with Steve Goodman's poignant "City of New Orleans." Guthrie has continued to perform and release albums regularly, but is also known as a spokesperson in the fight against Huntington's Disease, the ailment that killed his father.
