(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Old friends can make great times, and great musicians can make magic. Legendary acoustic virtuoso David Bromberg recently sparked the interest of old friend Linda Ronstadt during a performance at the Fillmore in San Francisco, developing into a collaboration of two icons of the 1970’s pop rock scene.
The Grammy-winning Ronstadt will be coming to Wilmington, Delaware, where Bromberg lives, to rehearse and to take the unique partnership to the stage for an “unscripted” performance at the Grand Opera House on June 13th.
“Linda and I are two old friends getting together to have some musical fun and giving the audience a chance to listen to the results,” said Bromberg. “We’re all excited to see what will happen.”
Bromberg is reuniting his Big Band for the special spontaneous and creative musical performance. The twice-yearly reunions bring together multi-talented musicians who have played alongside Bromberg’s guitars, mandolins, and fiddles for over thirty years, including Robert “Butch” Amiot, Mitch Corbin, Richard Crooks, Peter Ecklund, John Firmin, Nancy Josephson, Curtis Linberg and Jeff Wisor.
The featured guest, Ronstadt, first collaborated with Bromberg in 1975 on his “Midnight on the Water” album. She has also joined forces with James Taylor, Neil Young, Arlo Guthrie, Carly Simon, Warren Zevon, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Randy Newman, Aaron Neville, Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton and Rosemary Clooney. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
