David Bragger’s debut CD–Big Fancy

Big Fancy web


“David Bragger’s soul snakes itself out of his core, like a cobra being charmed from a basket, and this soul does indeed find it’s way to that fiddle bow…” -Ernie Hill, No Depression!

“…a fascinating listening experience.” –Bob Buckingham, Fiddler Magazine

“It seems like many folks have known for years what an amazing player David is (we both remember the first time we heard his fiddling, and our jaws dropped). But what we have here folks is a monster musician – diverse, knowledgeable, and with his own unique voice. For us, this – his debut album – is required listening for any old time music fans.”  —Pharis and Jason Romero

“…Every cut has something captivating about it….The best Washington’s March I’ve ever heard!”  –Dave Bing

“David Bragger’s new CD is yummy.  I wanted to play on every cut.” –Joe Newberry

“David Bragger, an LA native, has emerged over the last decade as a driving force in Southern California’s old-time music scene and beyond…he has his own voice, as all great musicians do. His fiddle sound is rich and strong, and the music selection in this all-instrumental project is excellent…This is a CD by a new force in contemporary old-time music, jam-packed with great tunes and with great playing all around. Highly recommended!”–Rafe Stefanini, The Old-Time Herald
