“These songs are not for the tourists,” says the Brooklyn teenager who ran away from home to join the rodeo back in the mid-1940s. The same one who became the last travellin’ partner to Woody Guthrie, the same one who taught young Bob Dylan his talkin’ blues. The mother of folksinger Odetta dubbed him ‘Ramblin’ Jack Elliott for his laconic Will Rogers-like drawl and drawn out storytellin’.. Now at age 80, he is a National Medal of Arts winner and just picked up a Grammy Award last year for a great album of dark county blues titled A Stranger Here. Would there be anywhere else to be than Harlow’s ( 2708 J St.) on Friday, Nov. 4 to see him ? Early show-7 pm.
