David Bromberg

With his 1971 self-titled Columbia Records release, David Bromberg emerged as the wunderkind of American roots music. The disc’s compelling blend of traditional and original material, virtuosic musicianship and iconic cover art trumpeted the arrival of a new artist possessed of audacious and uncompromising vision. Over the course of four albums for Columbia and five for Fantasy Records, and through associations with artists like Bob Dylan, Jerry Jeff Walker, John Hartford, George Harrison, the Grateful Dead, Emmylou Harris and Bonnie Raitt, David'ss reputation, repertoire and following grew exponentially. The incessant demands of touring brought the band’s recordings and shows to an end in the early 1980s. but David reemerged in 2006 with the release of the Grammy-nominated solo effort "Try Me One More Time," and he was really better than ever. Since then, David has played solo and band shows at The Ark, and each one has revealed an American musical maters. He comes to the Folk Festival with a new release, "Big Road."
