Our biggest show to date! Grammy winner for Best Traditional Blues album in 2009, Jack is one of the last true links to the great folk traditions of this country. With over 40 albums under his belt spanning over 60 years, even Bob Dylan calls him "the King of the Folksingers". From Johnny Cash to Tom Waits, Beck to Bonnie Raitt, Ry Cooder to Bruce Springsteen, the Grateful Dead to The Rolling Stones, they all have recorded with & paid homage to Ramblin' Jack Elliott.
In 1950, he met Woody Guthrie, moved in with the Guthrie family, often recording together with Woody in his home. In 1955 Jack married and traveled to Europe, bringing his genuine American folk, cowboy and blues repertoire and his guitar virtuosity, inspiring a new generation of budding British rockers, from Mick Jagger to Eric Clapton. When he returned to America in 1961, he met another young folksinger, Bob Dylan at Woody Guthrie's bedside, and mentored Bob. Jack has continued as an inspiration for every roots-inspired performer since.
