Arlo Davy Guthrie was born in Coney Island in 1947 and is a folk singer and songwriter. He was influenced by music at a young age through his father, renowned folk singer and composer, Woody Guthrie. Like his father, Arlo went on to make a name for himself by singing songs of protest against social injustice.

His debut single Alice's Restaurant Massacre (an 18 minute and 34 second satirical talking blues song giving a first person account of 1960s counterculture) has become his most well known piece of work and it led to the success of his 1967 debut album, Alice's Restaurant. The album went on to achieve Platinum status and the single was also the inspiration for the eponymous 1969 film. Arlo has also appeared in many films, TV shows, and he’s also a political activist. In September 1992, he was awarded the Peace Abbey Courage of Conscience award.
