It may seem lofty to use the motto of the United States to describe a musical group, but “out of many, one” accurately describes the trio of David Bromberg, Larry Campbell andDavid Hidalgo. Each of these acclaimed performers is steeped in American music traditions, from wildly divergent paths.
David Bromberg haunted the streets of Greenwich Village in the 1960’s, learning the blues first hand from Rev. Gary Davis and Mississippi John Hurt on his way to becoming an in-demand session musician and accompanist for Jerry Jeff Walker, Bob Dylan, Phoebe Snow, Willie Nelson and dozens more. Further musical explorations with Doc Watson and others lead to a deep dive into American bluegrass and country music. David’s unannounced performance before 400,000 at the Isle of Wight Festival in 1970 launched a legendary career as a recording artist and bandleader in his own right.
Larry Campbell, like Bromberg and Hidalgo, has lent his considerable talents to the aforementioned Mr. Dylan - Larry was by Bob’s side for eight years as a part of the ‘Never-Ending Tour’ band. Painstakingly teaching himself multiple instruments as a teen, Larry criss-crossed the US soaking up music in Austin, TX, Jackson, MS and Los Angeles. Studio recordings and tours with Keith Richards, kd lang, Jackson Browne, Emmylou Harris and others have cemented Larry’s reputation as a world class musician. A master guitarist, Larry is also accomplished on mandolin, lap steel, fiddle, pedal-steel guitar, cittern and banjo. Campbell is a three-time Grammy winner for his productions of Levon Helm. He currently records and tours with Teresa Williams.
David Hidalgo is perhaps best known as the guitarist and singer of the Grammy-winning band Los Lobos, the East LA based group he co-founded with Louie Perez. ‘Lobos’ has prospered over a storied forty-five year career, introducing audiences around the world to its unique Chicano-flavored American rock and roll, blues and roots music. Adept at a dizzying arsenal of instruments, Hidalgo is a masterful musician and singer who has contributed to recordings by Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Elvis Costello and Tom Waits and others. His unrivaled musicality and vision enables him to adapt to virtually any setting.
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.
