On Woody Guthrie’s 100th Birthday, His Granddaughter Muses on His Legacy

Folk icon Woody Guthrie would have turned 100 on July 14. To celebrate, the “Guthrie Family Reunion” will sing Saturday at the Green River Festival in Greenfield, Massachusetts. The group includes three generations of Woody’s descendants, including his son Arlo — famous for the sixties anthem ‘Alice’s Restaurant’ — and Arlo’s daughter Sarah Lee Guthrie. Sarah Lee recently met New England Public Radio’s Karen Brown at the Guthrie center in Great Barrington to talk about her grandfather’s legacy.
