- 5th GRAMMY NOMINATION for Ramblin' Jack - 'A STRANGER HERE'
Ramblin' Jack Elliott Receives 5th Grammy Nomination
For 'A Stranger Here' Produced by Joe Henry
with Special Friends Van Dyke Parks and David Hildago
The 2010 Grammy nominations have been announced and Jack's most recent album, A STRANGER HERE nabbed a spot for Best Traditional Blues album. Yes, blues. All pre WWII tunes from some of the amazing American Musical aritsts that Jack knew and loved. Produced by Joe Henry and released on Anti Epitaph Records - this project was a true labor of love.
Jack's has had four nominations in the past—and won one for 'A South Coast' on Red House Records in 1998 — 'Friends of Mine' on Hightone Records in1999 and 'A Long Ride' in 2001 - 'I Stand Alone' his debut on Anti a few short years ago - all in the folk catageory, so this is especially delightful! Jack can sing the blues like no other.
You'll find A STRANGER HERE and all of Jack's special recordings and Grammy-nominated and awarded albums in our Music Store.
Here's a view of a short documentary from Aiyana Elliott, Jack's daughter on the making of

A Four Star Review!
Jack & Mississippi John Hurt, 1964 by Jim Marshall
On A Stranger Here, Ramblin’ Jack teams up with ANTI artist and prolific producer Joe Henry. Joe brings together a team of incredible musicians, including David Hildago of Los Lobos and Van Dyke Parks with true gritty roots arrangements. The result is Jack's most well rounded and expansive album yet.
Jack is again, the living connection between America’s cultural past and present, linking blues and folk, white and black roots music, steeped in his unshakable reverence for American folk culture.

- WELCOME TO RAMBLINJACK.COM
My friends and family have finally pulled me into the 21st century, and I haven't yet become accustomed to the last half of the 20th. But it's important that we stay in touch. Especially today when it looks like we're all in for some hard travelin'.
The songs and stories of my life have always come from regular people who worked hard jobs and took on big challenges in tough times. Often enough life alone is a challenge. That's what folk songs and blues are all about. And in these uncertain days maybe my work has something to offer you.
My new record of old blues songs, A STRANGER HERE, is being well-received and I'm back touring. I'm especially looking forward to meeting up with Pete Seeger, Arlo Guthrie, Kris Kristofferson, Joan Baez and Bruce Springsteen for Pete's 90th birthday celebration at Madison Square Garden, on May 3.
Come by and see me at one of my concerts. See what we're offering in our online Music Store which is now up and open for business. Email us your thoughts. Don't be a stranger.
