David Bromberg

He's played with everyone, he's toured everywhere, he can lead a raucous big band or hold an audience silent with a solo acoustic blues. Bromberg's sensitive and versatile approach to guitar-playing earned him a coveted position as the first-call, "hired gun" guitarist for recording sessions, ultimately playing on hundreds of records by artists including Bob Dylan (New Morning, Self Portrait, Dylan), Link Wray, The Eagles, Ringo Starr, Willie Nelson, and Carly Simon.

David Maxwell, Blues / Opening Act: Dwight & Nicole

With a career spanning over four decades, veteran blues pianist David Maxwell has played with the greats, earning a reputation for his low-down, funky improv, and his unmatched ability to reach the heart of post-war Chicago blues.

"I don't think anybody could be tighter playing the blues on the piano than David Maxwell. He plays the blues like it should be played. He plays the low-down, dirty, funky blues. He's got it all together." - John Lee Hooker

An Evening with Leon Redbone

Redbone’s career first gained momentum in the early ’70s when Bob Dylan sought him out at the Mariposa Folk Festival. Most folks were introduced to the man during his network debut on Saturday Night Live in 1976, where he showcased his indelible version of “Walkin’ Stick.” In a year typified by amplified arena rock, Redbone’s intimate, low-key delivery proved to be a jolting antonym. Since then the opportunities for this unlikely figure to impose himself on pop culture have been plentiful.
