Ramblin' Jack Elliott

Ramblin' Jack Elliott

“Nobody I know — and I mean nobody — has covered more ground and made more friends and sung more songs than Ramblin’ Jack Elliott. He’s got a song and a friend for every mile behind him,” said Johnny Cash. One 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 country's legendary foundations of folk music. 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 today's fancy. We welcome this legend to the Opera House stage tonight.
