America’s most beloved singer/writer/philosopher/artist Woody Guthrie. Arlo has become an iconic figure in folk music with a distinguished and varied career spanning almost sixty years.
Growing up Guthrie, Arlo was surrounded by such renowned artists as Pete Seeger, Lee Hays, Ronnie Gilbert, Sonny Terry, Brownie McGhee, and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, to name only a few. Not surprisingly, Arlo drew from these influences and he, in turn, became a delineative artist bridging generations of folk. He and Pete Seeger created a legendary collaboration that sustained for over forty years. The last Pete & Arlo show was on November 30, 2013, at Carnegie Hall, only a few months before Pete passed away at the age of 94.
