A rare local appearance
A legend of the folk scene, David Bromberg got his start in the Greenwich Village coffeehouse scene in the mid-1960s. His extraordinary guitar picking and exceptional stylistic range developed over the next decade. David's live shows, rarer since he took up violin-making full time, range from Texas swing to bluegrass, blues, classical music, and anything else that might cross his mind. In the words of the New York Times, he "has such control of his audience that he can, at one moment, hold it in his hand with a tender, touching yet funny anecdotal song, and then set it romping and stomping with a raucous bit of raunch. He is electrifying." We might add that he picked up on the humor in country and classic blues as well as anyone else in the folk revival scene, making his shows a great deal of fun. David appears tonight with his band, with whom he recently recorded a new album, "The Blues, the Whole Blues, and Nothing But the Blues."
