Hartt & Soul Productions Presents: Benefitting One World
David Bromberg Quintet
Show Time : 8:00 PM
For Americana godfather David Bromberg, it all began with the blues. His incredible journey spans five-and-a-half decades, and includes adventures with Bob Dylan, George Harrison, and Jerry Garcia. A musician’s musician, Bromberg’s mastery of several stringed instruments (guitar, fiddle, Dobro, mandolin), and multiple styles is legendary, leading Dr. John to declare him an American icon. Bromberg even co-invented a genre: Newgrass. But now, with his latest release, The Blues, the Whole Blues, and Nothing But the Blues, he focuses on the music he discovered in high school, when, circa late 50s, he was introduced to a friend’s dad’s collection of blues 78s. The album is both blues primer and an opportunity to witness a master embracing this distinctly American music with passion and grace. Bromberg’s guitar work remains a marvel; amped electric lead – both slide and fretted – and delicately powerful acoustic fingerpicking. You do not want to miss this eclectic and electric show!
