Ramblin' Jack Elliott


Ramblin' Jack Elliot

There are few to whom the word "legend" can be authentically applied, but Ramblin' Jack Elliott is surely one of them. One of the last great figures of that incredible circle that included Woody Guthrie and Jack Kerouac, and one of the primary influences on Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen, Ramblin' Jack has indelibly left his mark on American music.

... and if you were in the audience or at the member house party following the concert, he left in you an indelible memory of his songs and stories.

A film of Ramblin' Jack's life, produced and directed by his daughter, has recently been released. Here is a link to the text of the New York Times review of the film.





Special Opening Act: TRAINWRECK

Trainwreck has evolved from a group of enthusiastic open-mikers, and now under the aegis of WFUV's Meg Griffen, they provided a delightful warm-up to a wonderful Summer evening under the stars!
