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.
Flight 317 is a revolving audition-only ensemble featuring teen instrumentalists from 317 Main Community Music Center in Yarmouth.
The group was started in 2012 by 317 Main Teaching Artist Carter Logan, who is best known locally as the banjo player for the bluegrass band Jerks of Grass. The intent is to give advancing students performance opportunities in an ensemble context – skills that will serve them well in their musical progression.
Flight 317 is currently made up of Sigrid Sibley on mandolin & vocals, Emi Schneider on guitar & vocals, Adriana Whitlock on upright bass and Terra May Gallo on fiddle.
