On the most recent episode of In Search of a Song I had the great pleasure of talking with the incredible
Ramblin’ Jack Elliot. A protege of Woody Guthrie, Jack is one of the true pioneers of folk music. He inspired the likes of Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, and many more in the early 1960’s New York City folk music scene.
Jack is now in his late seventies. He still travels around the world, singing his songs. Rambling as only he can! I really enjoyed talking with him, and I think you’ll come away with a new appreciation for this honest to goodness American treasure. We also want to thank our friend Tim Grimm, for setting up this interview for In Search of a Song.
