Larry Campbell

David Bromberg and Larry Campbell - Sunday Breakfast - 2013

by John Platt

David Bromberg and Larry Campbell have had a mutual admiration society for many years. It got renewed when Larry produced a session with David and Levon Helm for David's last album, Use Me, prompting David to ask Larry to produce his new CD, Only Slightly Mad. I was able to entice these two masters of multiple string instruments to join me in Studio A together. They shared memories of Levon, stories about Dylan, and insights into the art of the sideman — plus they treated us to three exquisite live performances.

Larry Campbell is a master of guitar, violin and all things stringed and strummed. You might know him from his years touring with Bob Dylan, working as an A-list session player, or serving as the musical director of The Levon Helm Band. With the late, great Levon, Campbell joined a long list of artists to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Amnesty International on the "Toast To Freedom" project, and Larry came by FUV to tell host Rita Houston all about it.
