David Lindley with Bernie Larsen
What he played did as much to form my music as my writing those songs...This is one of the great slide players of all time. (Jackson Browne, Rolling Stone 5/27/10)
The Cedar welcomes back an old friend: string wizard David Lindley. David earned a 2011 Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Folk Album for his collaboration with Jackson Browne, Love Is Strange - En Vivo Con Tino, but their collaboration goes back many decades, with David having first recorded with Jackson Browne on 1973's For Everyman, as well as on later classics such as The Pretender. Along with many other choice supporting roles (Warren Zevon, Ry Cooder, Bob Dylan, Rod Stewart, Linda Ronstadt, Crosby and Nash), David earned a rabid cult following for his own band El Rayo-X, brought the music of Madagascar to broader attention through his explorations with Henry Kaiser, spent six years touring in a fertile collaboration with Jordanian percussionist Hani Naser, and recorded a string of zany albums with Wally Ingram. With Mr Dave's instrumental prowess, a wealth of songs, his colorful shirts, and a string of humorous stories, it is safe to predict you will be well entertained.
Opening tonight will be singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Bernie Larsen, an original member of El Rayo-X.
