Thread Name: Ramblin' Jack Elliott lives
Subject: RE: Ramblin' Jack Elliott lives
Jack Elliott of Birtley - he and his family were/are well known in the Newcastle/Northeast area of England as traditional singers - used to call himself "Stumbling Jack Elliott" to differentiate himself from Rambin' Jack, who lived in England for a while around the 60s, and was well known on the scene.
