Elliott is one of folk music's most enduring legends, influencing everyone from Bob Dylan and Pete Seeger to the Rolling Stones and the Grateful Dead. On a STRANGER HERE Elliott takes on depression era blues songs that have a particular resonance in these turbulent times. With his world-scarred voice wrapped around these dark songs of dark days, Elliott has made his masterpiece, and album at once elegiac and defiant, that can stand beside great late-career recordings by Billie Holliday and Frank Sinatra. Produced by Joe Henry (Aimee Mann, Elvis Costello, Solomon Burke).
