For Americana godfather David Bromberg, it all began with the blues. His incredible journey spans five-and-a-half decades, and includes – but is not limited to – adventures with Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jerry Garcia, and both music and life lessons from seminal blues guitarist Reverend Gary Davis, who claimed the young Bromberg as a son. With his album ‘The Blues, the Whole Blues, and Nothing But the Blues’, Bromberg and multi-Grammy-winning producer/accompanist Larry Campbell focus on the music David discovered in high school, circa late 50s, when he was introduced to a collection of blues 78s.
