Both Todd Snider and Ramblin’ Jack Elliot are comedic storytellers. Johnny Cash described Elliot as a man with "a song and a friend for every mile behind him."
Todd Snider is also in Hard Working Americans, the band made up of members of Widespread Panic and the Chris Robinson Brotherhood, and has long been recognized as one of his generation’s most gifted and engaging songwriters
Nick Cristiano of the Philadelphia Inquirer described Snider as a “troubadour-philosopher, offhandedly and entertainingly profound,” and having “sharp-witted social commentary” mixed with “shaggy-dog stories.”
Meanwhile Ramblin’ Jack Elliott is one of the last true links to the great folk traditions of this country. With over 40 albums under his belt, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott is considered one of the country’s legendary foundations of folk music.
