Newport Folk Festival 1967

Arlo Guthrie introduces his 18-minutes tome “Alice’s Restaurant” for the first time at the 1967 Newport Folk Festival. It’s based on a true story — his arrest for littering — and though greatly exaggerated, the arrest does keep him out of the Vietnam War.

Nobody caught Arlo on video back at Newport so here he is at Farm Aid 2005 …
