This is a special engagement with one of the legends of country and folk music. You dont want to miss this one! Ramblin Jack ElliottNobody I know and I mean nobody has covered more ground and made more friends and sung more songs than the fellow youre about to meet right now. Hes got a song and a friend for every mile behind him. Say hello to my good buddy, Ramblin Jack Elliott. Johnny Cash, The Johnny Cash Television Show 1969One of the last true links to the great folk traditions of this country, with over 40 albums under his belt, Ramblin Jack Elliott is considered one of the countrys legendary foundations of folk music. Long before every kid in America wanted to play guitar before Elvis, Dylan, the Beatles or Led Zeppelin Ramblin Jack had picked it up and was passing it along. From Johnny Cash to Tom Waits, Beck to Bonnie Raitt, Ry Cooder to Bruce Springsteen, the Grateful Dead to The Rolling Stones, they all pay homage to Ramblin Jack Elliott. In the tradition of roving troubadours Jack has carried the seeds and pollens of story and song for decades from one place to another, from one generation to the next. They are timeless songs that outlast whatever current musical fashion strikes todays fancy. His tone of voice is sharp, focused and piercing. All that and he plays the guitar effortlessly in a fluid flat-picking perfected style.
