At the recent Arlo Guthrie concert I had an ahha! moment. In 2015 it will be 50 years since his iconic anti-war song, ‘Alice’s Restaurant’ as written. It became a hit some 3-4 years later. By deduction that means I was about 12-13 when I first heard it, was introduced to Woody Guthrie, the legendary American songwriter and singer, Arlo’s Dad, and started to read John Steinbeck. On stage at the concert were 2 generations of the Guthrie clan and one of the Steinbeck family, representatives of a dynasty which has played a significant role in my growing up.
