David Bromberg was born at St. Agnes Hospital in South Philadelphia, and before his family moved to New York, the dazzling guitarist, who will perform at the Philadelphia Folk Festival this weekend, spent the first few years of his life in either Chester or West Chester.

"I know they're very different, but I can't remember which," says the 65-year-old singer and songwriter, who last month released Use Me, a genre-hopping roots-music album featuring Los Lobos, Vince Gill, Linda Ronstadt, and Levon Helm on Appleseed Recordings, which is based in one of the places Bromberg may be from.
