Scottsdale Arts and Danny Zelisko Presents
With Special Guest John McEuen of Nitty Gritty Dirt Band
David Bromberg is “an American music icon” (Dr. John) and counts Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Emmylou Harris, Jerry Garcia, Bonnie Raitt, Carly Simon, The Eagles and so many more as collaborators, fans and friends. The Blues, the Whole Blues and Nothing But the Blues, was Bromberg’s 18th album and DownBeat magazine’s 2017 Blues Album of the Year. Known as the “Godfather of Americana,” the legendary folk musician and singer-songwriter embraces this distinctly American music with passion and grace.
John McEuen, founding member of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band in 1966, began playing the banjo at age 17 and branched out to learn guitar, fiddle and mandolin. He has made over 40 albums (seven solo) that have earned four platinum and five gold recognition awards and has performed in more than 10,000 concerts; his first with Bob Dylan in 1965. He was inducted into the American Banjo Museum Hall of Fame in 2017.
