Iron Horse Music Hall

In the mid-1960s, Bromberg discontinued his college studies in order to immerse himself in the burgeoning Greenwich Village folk music scene. Having dropped out of Columbia University, he eventually found himself signed to Columbia Records, which released his eponymous debut in 1971.Throughout the decade, Bromberg would write, record and perform with artists such as Tom Rush, Jerry Jeff Walker, Bob Dylan, Richie Havens, Carly Simon, Ringo Starr, George Harrison, Emmylou Harris, Willie Nelson, Bonnie Raitt, The Eagles, The Band, The Grateful Dead and fellow Greenwich Village denizen John Sebastian. Having kept busy as a solo artist and in-demand multi-instrumentalist in the 1970s, Bromberg moved with his wife from California to Chicago in order to study violin making. His pursuit of this passion as a profession led to a more or less complete retirement from touring and recording. 2007’s “Try Me One More Time,” which earned him a Grammy nomination for Best Traditional Folk Album, was his first release in 17 years. In 2002, he founded David Bromberg Fine Violins, which is located in Wilmington, Del. David Bromberg's new release.is caled "The Blues, the Whole Blues, and Nothing but the Blues.”
