Ramblin’ Jack and Me

Michael Willard

With my 1976 Martin Dreadnaught

It was the early 70s when Ramblin’ Jack invited me into the trailer parked outside the field house at Kansas State to hoist a few beers with him and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.

The rumor was Joan Baez was going to show, but she never did. I was there all night, soaking up the atmosphere and taking notes on a two-inch-width reporter’s pad.
