For Americana godfather David Bromberg, it all began with the blues. His incredible journey spans five-and-a-half decades, and includes – but is not limited to – adventures with Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jerry Garcia, and music and life lessons from seminal blues guitarist, Reverend Gary Davis, who claimed young Bromberg as a son. 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. His album, “The Blues, the Whole Blues and Nothing But the Blues,” is 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. Although he remains the proprietor of the beloved David Bromberg Fine Violins in Wilmington, Delaware, he still makes time to tour. If you love the blues, you will love this concert in the intimate setting of our Studio Theatre.
