From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

David Bromberg (b. September 19, 1945 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is an American guitarist. Bromberg has an eclectic style, playing bluegrass, blues, folk, country and western, and rock & roll equally well. He is known for his quirky, humorous lyrics.

Bromberg has played with Jerry Jeff Walker, Jerry Garcia, and Bob Dylan, and is the co-writer, with former Beatle George Harrison, of the song The Holdup. He currently lives in Wilmington, Delaware where he owns a violin sales and repair shop, heavily subsidized by the City of Wilmington. He occasionally performs at Wilmington's Grand Opera House.

The quintessential musician's musician, Bromberg is proficient on fiddle, many styles of acoustic and electric guitar (to each of which he lends a highly individual voice), pedal steel guitar and Dobro. David Lindley, Norman Blake, Mark O'Connor, and Ricky Skaggs are among the small number of other major musicians with equal proficiency on three or more string instruments.

Bromberg released his first new studio album since 1990 with Try Me One More Time Feb. 27, 2007 on Appleseed Recordings. The new disc includes Dylan's "It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry" and Elizabeth Cotten's "Shake Sugaree." Bromberg's last disc was Sideman Serenade.
