RAMBLIN' JACK ELLIOTT
"Ramblin' Jack Elliott has been a towering influence on a generation of folk and rock musicians, most notably Bob Dylan." The Boston Globe

One of the last direct links to the great folk traditions of this country, Ramblin' Jack Elliott is one of the legendary foundations of American folk music. 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.   In 1950, he met Woody Guthrie, moved in with the Guthrie family and traveled with Woody to California and Florida, from the redwood forests to the Gulf Stream waters. Along the way he learned the blues first-hand from Leadbelly, Mississippi John Hurt, the Reverend Gary Davis, Big Bill Broonzy, Brownie McGhee and Sonny Terry, Jesse Fuller and Champion Jack Dupree. So it's fitting that in 2011, he received a Grammy Award in the Traditional Blues category for his album, A Stranger Here. (His previous Grammy was in the folk category). He received the National Medal of Arts award and was honored with a special dinner at the White House.  Recently the award-winning film The Ballad of Ramblin' Jack introduced a new generation to his timeless music and yarns.  We are honored to have this national treasure start our concert year.
Americana/Country/Rockabilly singer Vikki Lee opens the show.
