Born into incredible artistic influence, American folk singer Arlo Guthrie is the eldest son of America’s most beloved singer/writer/philosopher Woody Guthrie and Marjorie Mazia Guthrie, a professional dancer with the Martha Graham Company and founder of The Committee to Combat Huntington’s Disease.
In addition to being a masterful musician in piano, guitar, harmonica and a dozen other instruments, he is a natural-born storyteller, whose off-beat anecdotes and personal tales weave seamlessly into his performances. Arlo Guthrie artfully crafts political commentary and spiritual musings into lively, thoughtful folk music.
A career that has spanned decades and countries has confirmed Guthrie’s international stature and wide popularity. Arlo Guthrie performed at Woodstock in 1969 and released a landmark 1967 album, Alice’s Restaurant, whose title song gave a powerful voice to the ‘60s generation that would shape music’s importance in bringing forth social justice and activism.
