A Vacation from Ordinary Film.
David Bromberg is a musician's musician who collaborated with Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jerry Garcia and other greats. He stopped performing publicly in the 1980's and turned to violin making. The film reveals this rich, largely untold history through intimate interviews, archival photos, footage and never-before released cuts of Bromberg's music.
An equal passion for blues, folk, country, bluegrass and rock , Bromberg's diverse range resurfaced in 2007 when he began a musical comeback, recording an album that was recently nominated for a Grammy award; and also helping to revitalize an urban community. These stories unfold over vibrant and soulful music that tell its own engaging narrative: a life worth living and a body of work worth pursuing.
