Welcome to Ivan Rosenberg's website, where you'll find original bluegrass, folk, and old time recordings featuring Dobro and clawhammer banjo, free downloadable tablature, and plenty more.

Bio: Since releasing his first solo album in 2001, Ivan Rosenberg has gained a dedicated following for his melodic, expressive acoustic music on Dobro and clawhammer banjo. Millions have heard his original songs in the background of over 300 television programs and films including The Daily Show, Oprah, Call of the Wildman, History Detectives, HBO's Making Deadwood, the Special Edition DVD of Serenity, and the Hollywood blockbuster Kangaroo Jack. Ivan earned an IBMA Award for co-writing the 2009 Song of the Year; played on the CD Southern Filibuster: A Tribute to Tut Taylor (produced by Grammy winner and Dobro legend Jerry Douglas); and performed with musicians including Chris Coole, The Foggy Hogtown Boys, Chris Jones & The Night Drivers, Chris Stuart & Backcountry, and the April Verch Bigger Band. Ivan is also in high demand as an instructor, having taught a combined 45 weeks at music workshops such as Steve Kaufman's Acoustic Kamp, Sore Fingers Week in England, Walker Creek Music Camp, California Bluegrass Association Music Camp, ResoSummit, 108 Mile Cabin Fever Bluegrass Workshop, NBCMS Acoustic Music Workshop, British Columbia Bluegrass Workshop, Midwest Banjo Camp, Puget Sound Guitar Workshop, and Grand Targhee Music Camp.
