David Bromberg “An American Music Icon”
David Bromberg, GRAMMY®-nominee, decorated multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter, gifted song interpreter and lauded bandmate to the stars will return to the Capitol Theatre on Thursday, March 22 at 8 pm. In 2016, David Bromberg released his latest album The Blues, The Whole Blues and Nothing But The Blues (Red House Records). Produced by Levon Helm and Bob Dylan’s long-time collaborator and three-time GRAMMY® winner, Larry Campbell, Bromberg’s first album since 2013 is a wonderfully curated selection of deep cuts from the blues genre, in addition to original compositions. Bromberg found his inspiration for the album when he heard Willie Nelson repeat a quote from Texas fiddler Johnny Gimble: “There’s only two kinds of music – the Star-Spangled Banner and the Blues.”
Bromberg is “an American music icon” (Dr. John), and counts Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Emmylou Harris, Jerry Garcia, Bonnie Raitt, Carly Simon, The Eagles and so many more as collaborators, fans and friends. This is Bromberg’s 18th album, the latest in a solo career that began in 1971 on his self-titled debut.
