During his closing set at Newport Folk Festival 2013, Beck was surprised on stage by Ramblin’ Jack Elliott. The influential folk legend joined Beck, members of Black Prairie and Andrew Bird during their performance of Jimmie Rodgers’ “Waiting For A Train,” (which a hobo sang on Beck’s 1994 lo-fi masterpiece Stereopathic Soulmanure), and they finished the song together.

Following a hearty round of applause and Elliott’s exit from the stage, Beck said, “Well that was an honor. I think I’m done now.”
