Ramblin' Jack Elliott
Ramblin' Jack Elliott is among dozens of musicians who will gather at Madison Square Garden on May 3 to celebrate American folk legend Pete Seeger's 90th birthday.

Later that month, Ramblin' Jack will revisit neighborhoods he used to frequent with the likes of Jack Kerouac and Bob Dylan in the 1950s and '60s when he plays a special show at the Highline Ballroom in New York City on May 12. Other east and west coast dates available below.

The 77-year-old Elliott is making a number of select appearances in support of his upcoming release A Stranger Here, available today, April 7 on ANTI- Records. Produced by Joe Henry (Bettye LaVette, Solomon Burke, Elvis Costello/Allen Toussaint), A Stranger Here is a collection of carefully chosen pre-WWII blues songs, re-crafted with backing by legendary Los Angeles session musicians such as Van Dyke Parks and David Hidalgo and re-imagined with Elliott's world-scarred voice.

Tour dates available here.
