Arlo Guthrie

(1947- )

Arlo Guthrie isn’t a native Oklahoman, but he has strong ties to the state through his father, legendary singer Woody Guthrie. If fact, Arlo visits the state often and regularly performs for many of the same fans who celebrate Woody’s music. Though Arlo pays homage to Woody through his work, he is an accomplished performer in his own right, known for such classic albums as Alice’s Restaurant (1967).

In 1995, Arlo, also an actor, launched his career as a children’s author with Mooses Come Walking. In reviewing the book, em>The New York Times noted that Arlo “never loses his audience.”
