Folk singer, Ramblin Jack Elliott's nickname comes not from his traveling habits, but rather the countless stories he relates before answering the simplest of questions.  Folk singer,  Odetta claimed that her mother gave him the name, remarking, "Oh, that Jack Elliott, yeah,  he can sure ramble on!"  Elliott plays guitar in a traditional flatpicking style, which he matches with his humorous storytelling, often accompanying himself on harmonica.  His singing has a strained, nasal quality which the young Bob Dylan emulated.  His repertoire includes American traditional music from various genres, including country, blues, bluegrass and folk.
