Ramblin’ Jack Elliott and Roy Rogers

to Appear at The Shane Center in Livingston


The Shane Lalani Center for the Arts announced today the inaugural concert at their new Henry E. Blake Pavilion on July 20, 2024. Their performers for this fundraising event are Folk Legend Ramblin’ Jack Elliott and Grammy winning slide guitarist Roy Rogers.


Russell Lewis, Artistic Director of the Shane Center, said, “It’s beyond exciting to have artists of this caliber play for our first major concert in the Henry E. Blake Pavilion. We look forward to years of presenting music and theater to the citizens of Park County in our incredible new venue.”


Celebrating 92 years young in 2023, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott is known for his ever-curious spirit and continues to tour - recently performed at Carnegie Hall in March. A veteran troubadour-style performer, it is through sharing songs and tales gathered over a career of more than 60 years (through the roots of Folk, Blues, Americana, Cowboy music, and poetry) that this American icon is in his purest element.


Mr. Elliott is a Presidential National Medal of Arts recipient with a permanently enshrined seat at Woody Guthrie Center Theater in Tulsa, OK. He’s received the 2016 Folk Alliance Lifetime Achievement Award, two Grammy awards, and has released 40 albums.


Roy Rogers has dazzled the streets of Livingston with his Delta Blues trio the Rhythm Kings at the second Livingston Hoot. He has toured the world and just this past October visited Bozeman in his opening set with the legendary Bonnie Raitt. The highlight of the show was when Roy joined Bonnie during the encore for a slide guitar duel. This Grammy winner is known for his extraordinary slide guitar skills, and brings an understanding of the Delta Blues to these modern times. He’s also known as a producer, and has worked with artists such as John Lee Hooker and Mr. Elliott.


Mr. Rogers has worked with Ramblin’ Jack for several decades, and for part of the program, the two will join together to tell stories and perform songs from Jack’s amazing career.


Executive Director of the Shane Center Erika Adams added, “ We want to thank every donor, our Board of Directors, and partners in construction that have made it possible to break ground on the Pavilion. We can’t wait to see you all on July 20th.”


Bob Dylan calls Ramblin’ Jack, “the King of the Folk Singers.” Don’t miss your chance to experience a very rare performance by a true folk icon and a Delta blues master. Tickets are available at www.theshanecenter.org or by calling the box office at (406) 222-1420.
