EPISODE 1 I first met international treasure Ramblin' Jack Elliott in Cookeville, Tennessee at Muddy Roots Music Festival in 2015. Jack turns 90 this year (2021) & he has been getting familiar with video calls while the current pandemic has restricted his travels. On March 18th, the day after St. Patrick's Day, I had an hour long video call with Jack & I turned the audio of the call into Ep1 of 'The Stirring Foot'. Needless to say, the audio isn't of a studio quality, it's a zoom call through the internet. But the stories transcend & shine through, after all, it's Ramblin' Jack Elliott...
Jack now lives on the coast of California & has been described as the "son of Woody Guthrie & the father of Bob Dylan". In this episode, I talk to Jack about his trips to Ireland, Europe & the UK. The Clancy Brothers, Frank Zappa, Bob Dylan, Odetta, The grateful Dead, Magaret Barry, Ewan MacColl, Woody Guthrie & Brendan Behan all get a mention.
