Arlo Guthrie was born with a guitar in one hand and a harmonica in the other in New York in 1947. He is the eldest son of America's most beloved singer/writer/philosopher Woody Guthrie and Marjorie Mazia Guthrie, a professional dancer.
Arlo grew up surrounded by dancers and musicians and he gave his first public performance at age 13. Practically living in the most famous venues of the folk boom era during the 1960s, Arlo counted Pete Seeger, Jim Croce, Joan Baez, and Bob Dylan among his close friends. Arlo Guthrie's career exploded in 1967 with the release of ‘Alice's Restaurant’ and he went on to star in the 1969 Hollywood film based on the song; the same year he appeared at the Woodstock festival.
At 18 minutes and 34 seconds, ‘Alice’s Restaurant’ was too long for radio airplay but Arlo managed to achieve chart success when he released the definitive rendition of Steve Goodman's ‘City of New Orleans’. Over the last four decades Guthrie has toured throughout North America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia winning a wide, popular following.
In 2006 Arlo toured with his family in the Guthrie Family Legacy Tour. And now, for the first time since his early days, he has taken to the road by himself on The Solo Reunion Tour: Together at Last. In addition to his accomplishments as a musician, playing the piano, six and 12-string guitar, harmonica, and a dozen other instruments, Arlo is a natural-born storyteller whose tales and anecdotes figure prominently in his performances.
