About David Bromberg
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, the Grateful Dead, Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Rait and music and life lessons from seminal blues guitarist Reverend Gary Davis, who claimed the 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. In producing John Hartford’s hugely influential Aereo-Plain LP, Bromberg even co-invented a genre: Newgrass.
Add in a period of self-imposed exile from his passion (1980-2002), during which he became a renowned violin expert, and Wilmington, Delaware’s cultural ambassador; top that off with a triumphant return to music-making, and you have an amazing tale leading back to one place: the blues.
The David Bromberg Quintet eventually emerged, settling into its current lineup of Mark Cosgrove (guitar, mandolin, vocals), Nate Grower (fiddle, mandolin, guitar, vocals), Josh Kanusky (drums, vocals), and newest member, Suavek Zaniesienko (bass, vocals). Joining David’s core band are keyboardist extraordinaire Dan Walker on piano, organ and accordion, a stellar horn section of Bromberg regulars like Birch Johnson (trombone), Jon-Erik Kellso (trumpet), Matt Koza (tenor sax) and Bob Stewart (tuba) with Larry Campbell on mandolin and pedal steel.
The new album, Big Road, gives Bromberg fans the most intimate portrait to date of David and the band, musically and visually. Featuring twelve new tracks, five hi-def performance videos and a mini-documentary detailing the album’s creation. We think you’ll agree that this intimate performance with the David Bromberg Quintet is a trip worth taking.
