“We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.” – T.S. Eliot

“There’s only two kinds of music – ‘the Star Spangled Banner’ and the blues.” – Willie Nelson, quoting renowned fiddler Johnny Gimble


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 music and life lessons from seminal blues guitarist Reverend Gary Davis, who claimed the young Bromberg as a son. A musician’s musician, Bromberg’s mastery of several stringed instruments (guitar, fiddle, Dobro, mandolin), and multiple styles is legendary, leading Dr. John to declare him an American icon. In producing John Hartford’s hugely influential Aereo-Plain LP, Bromberg even co-invented a genre: Newgrass.

Add in a period of self-imposed exile from his passion (1980-2002), during which he became a renowned violin expert, and Wilmington, Delaware’s cultural ambassador; top that off with a triumphant return to music-making, and you have an amazing tale leading back to one place: the blues.

Nashville-based guitarist Jordan Tice is quickly becoming regarded as one of the most exciting young artists on the American roots music scene. He has worked as a sideman to legendary performers like guitarist Dave Rawlings, banjo player Tony Trischka, and comedian Steve Martin, as well as released four solo albums of original music to critical acclaim. His latest release, "Horse County", features his singing and songwriting in addition to his established instrumental-writing and guitar-picking skills with a sound that calls to mind the music of Roger Miller, John Hartford, and Norman Blake. In addition to his solo work and work as a sideman he is also a part of the instrumental supergroup, Hawktail, which features members of Punch Brothers and Crooked Still. He has toured the US, Europe, and Australia and has been featured on Live from Here (formerly Prairie Home Companion) as well as at festivals like the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, the Grey Fox Bluegrass festival and the Strawberry Music Festival.
