Arlo Guthrie

  • Time to Celebrate: Arlo Guthrie celebrates a half-century of the event that inspired “Alice’s Restaurant Massacree” with a performance that includes popular selections from other albums
  • Arlo’s Cause: to fight fascism and injustice through music
  • Where He Got It From: his father, Woodie Guthrie, the folk legend known for such protest songs as “This Land is Your Land” and “The Biggest Thing Man Has Ever Done”
  • How Arlo Fought the Draft: with the satirical spoken-word blues epic “Alice’s Restaurant Massacree,” which tells the true story of how he was rejected from the US Army because of a littering charge
  • Fun Fact About that Song: Its length (18 minutes and 34 seconds) is the exact length of one of the gaps in Nixon’s Watergate tapes. He has been known to stretch it out to 45 minutes in concert, though.
  • Seasonally Appropriate: Inspired by events that transpired during Thanksgiving 1965, the song remains a Thanksgiving anthem for families all over the country
  • How Arlo Paid Tribute to the Past: with a cover of Steve Goodman’s “City of New Orleans,” a sentimental and bittersweet ode to passenger-train travel
  • How He Fought Injustice Around the World: through musical collaborations with fellow folk singers of other traditions—most notably British poet Adrian Mitchell and Chilean singer-songwriter Victor Jara
