HomeAcousticRamblin’ Jack Elliott and Pete Seeger: “Portland Town” and “Mule Skinner Blues” Carl February 16, 2016 Acoustic, Country, Slider Ramblin’ Jack Elliott performing the affecting “Portland Town” and he and Pete Seeger doing “Mule Skinner Blues.” Here is more of Elliott and a nice moment featuring him and Beck. Not familiar with Beck, but I like the guy just from this. “Mule Skinner Blues” is a great old standard. Anyone who is interested, check out this clip of the song performed by Jerry Reed and Chet Atkins. The poster at YouTube set it not to be embedded on other sites.
