Dave Bromberg brings the coffeehouse folk sounds that flourished in Greenwich Village in the 1960s to the Britt hillside at 7 p.m. Saturday, June 30.
Once intent on a career as a musicologist, he turned to performing while in college. His extraordinary guitar picking and exceptional stylistic range brought him the respect of fellow musicians and as a sideman on over 100 albums, according to his official biography at www.davidbromberg.net. He’s also a trained violin maker who buys and sells instruments at his shop in Willmington, Del.
He’s currently touring with the folk group, Angel Band, featuring the elegant voices of Nancy Josephson (Bromberg’s wife), Kathleen Weber and Jen Schonwald and a selection of seasoned folk and bluegrass musicians.
The Dougie MacLean Acoustic Band opens the show. Guitarist and fiddle player MacLean is a singer, songwriter and composer who is a leader in the Scottish music scene. Building from ancient roots, he created contemporary music that has been featured in television and movies, including “The Last of the Mohicans,” and “Angel Eyes.”
