David Bromberg and Loudon Wainwright III

Back to Previous

A godfather of Americana and accomplished blues guitarist and multi-instrumentalist, Bromberg is renowned for his unparalleled playing and gift for interpretation. His career spans more than 45 years, with collaborators such as Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jerry Garcia, Carly Simon, Emmylou Harris, and The Eagles. A protégé of Reverend Gary Davis, Bromberg’s penchant for the blues led him to record 2016’s The Blues, the Whole Blues, and Nothing but the Blues, which PopMatters calls “a master class in blues-oriented Americana.”

Songwriter and folk-guitarist Loudon Wainwright III came to fame when “Dead Skunk” became a Top 20 hit in 1972. His songs have since been recorded by Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Cash, Earl Scruggs, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, his son Rufus Wainwright, and Mose Allison, among others. He has recorded 27 albums including his 2010 Grammy Award-winning ‘High, Wide & Handsome,’ and in the fall of 2018, Loudon released ‘Years In The Making’ (StorySound Records), a 42-song treasury of rare and unreleased Loudoniana. This audio-biography of his 40-year career includes orphaned album cuts, lovingly lo-fi home recordings, radio appearances, demos, live performances and beyond.
