Ramblin’ Jack Elliott is a folk icon. He met Woody Guthrie in 1950, moved in with the Guthrie family, and traveled with Woody from the redwood forests of California to the Gulf Stream waters of Florida. His deep immersion in Woody’s music led Woody to remark, “Jack sounds more like me than I do.” Bob Dylan describes him this way in his Chronicles: Volume One: “His tone of voice is sharp, focused, and piercing. All that and he plays the guitar effortlessly in a fluid flat-picking perfected style . . . Most folk musicians waited for you to come to them. Jack went out and grabbed you.” He won the Grammy for Best Traditional Folk Album in 1995 and the Grammy for Best Traditional Blues Album in 2009. He won the National Medal of the Arts along the way. Here’s how Johnny Cash introduced him on his TV show back in the day: “Nobody I know – and I mean nobody – has covered more ground and made more friends and sung more songs than the fellow you're about to meet right now. He's got a song and a friend for every mile behind him."
