    Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Elliott Kay

    Perhaps the greatest surviving character from the mid-century folk revival, 91-year-old Ramblin’ Jack Elliott remains the essence of America’s free spirit. As a young New Yorker at the dawn of the 1950’s he befriended, studied with, and traveled alongside Woody Guthrie, then became a link of authenticity for a generation of ensuing artists: mentoring Dylan and the Dead, and inspiring a school-aged Mick Jagger to get a guitar after seeing Elliott busking at a train station in England. Cowboy, sailor, vagabond, minstrel, and National Medal of the Arts recipient, the singer/guitarist is, at his core, the ultimate wayfaring storyteller, absorbing the country and passing it on through song.
