David Bromberg Quintet

When: Sat., June 28, 8 p.m. 2014

Jerry Jeff Walker calls David Bromberg “the reason man created string instruments.” Blessed with astounding musical gifts, the singer-songwriter and guitarist floats effortlessly between genres. A musicology major at Columbia University during the 1960s, Bromberg counted Greenwich Village’s thriving folk scene as his other classroom. There, he honed a versatile style, eventually becoming a session player for Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson and others. Bromberg’s 1971 self-titled debut secured his status as an acclaimed musician — one that he maintains to this day, as evidenced by his celebrated 2013 release, Only Slightly Mad. The “Godfather of Americana” takes the stage with his quintet for an evening of eclectic tunes.

Price: $20-55.
