The legendary folk singer's conversation with Irish singer-songwriter Dylan Walshe premieres on the online radio station on April 28.
Dublin Digital Radio have a new music interview series, The Stirring Foot, on the way – launching later this month with Episode 1, starring Ramblin' Jack Elliott. The folk icon will be interviewed by Nashville-based Irish singer-songwriter Dylan Walshe in the highly anticipated hour-long show, premiering on ddr. at 12pm on April 28, and streaming on all platforms from April 30.
In the episode, Jack – who has been described as the "son of Woody Guthrie and the father of Bob Dylan" – opens up about his trips to Ireland, Europe and the UK; The Clancy Brothers; Frank Zappa; Odetta; The Grateful Dead; Ewan MacColl; Woody Guthrie; Brendan Behan and more.
"I first met international treasure Ramblin' Jack Elliott in Cookeville, Tennessee at Muddy Roots Music Festival in 2015," Dylan comments. "Jack turns 90 this year (2021) and he has been getting familiar with video calls while the current pandemic has restricted his travels. On March 18th, the day after St. Patrick's Day, I had an hour long video call with Jack and I turned the audio of the call into Ep 1 of The Stirring Foot."
My video call with Jack will premiere on @DublinDigiRadio on April 28th at noon Irish Time. I will then release an extended version for streaming once it has aired 💚https://t.co/7IKNrjy6zB#ramblinjackelliott pic.twitter.com/C0tC7Xbup2
