Ramblin' Jack Elliott's 88th Birthday

Ramblin' Jack is celebrating his 88th birthday. I've known Ramblin' Jack pretty much my entire life, and at this point that's saying something. He's probably the single most important connection to my father, aside from maybe Pete Seeger. But, Jack was the one who, when I was very young, was able to show me how to play the guitar, how to hold the attention of an audience, and to deliver a song or story onstage. Not by talking about it, but simply by doing it. I learned a lot from Pete as well, but that came later.

As kids in school, we would listen to Jack's recordings and memorize every detail and nuance of what he was doing. It became the foundation of what I'm still doing today.

I'm happy to say that as I got older (in my teens) we became friends, and that friendship has lasted throughout my 70+ years of being around. I always liked going places, and although my travels usually made my mom nervous (especially in my younger days), I could always allay her fears by telling her I would stay with Jack.

He is also the best un-offical uncle my own kids could have ever had. In other words, he's a part of the family. So, we're sending our best thoughts of gratitude to Jack on this, his 88th birthday - Wherever he is, probably doing a gig somewhere out west.

Folksingers may have a longer shelf life than dancers, or athletes, but time takes a toll on everyone. I remember about 8 years ago noticing I couldn't sing or play with quite the same ability as i had gotten used to. Somehow Jack is still going and doing better than ever. I don't understand it, but it's a welcome sign. It also means I can't give in to the temptations of age. I'm just slowing the pace a little bit.

I could go on and on, but sometimes it just has to be enough to say "Thanks." I hope this day puts a smile on your face.

Heartland Casino is happy to welcome the regional Shriners conference to our great city. Bring your friends and enjoy a little bit of Vegas right here in Aberdeen.

Heartland Casino is proud to support the D.A.V.

Jeremiah Sundown and his fans came out to show their support and we hope that everyone would consider giving a donation to this worthy charity.
