Tony Dixon Music
I grew up surrounded by music, from Cat Stevens to Yes and anything between and beyond! Perhaps because I'll listen to anything (as long as it's good...), I've ended up playing a variety of instruments too. Classically trained on the flute, I branched out into folk via the tin whistle. Voice was my first instrument though: I've been singing and writing lyrics all my life, and eventually picked up the guitar in order to create more complete songs. The magic that seems to happen when Brian's voice and mine combine is one of the great joys of performing with him.
My lovely Martin HD28 has been a constant companion since shortly after hearing Pete Townsend strumming Pinball Wizard. I decided to pester my poor mother to buy me a guitar and since then, I've never been lonely. HD and I have spent many nights, just the two of us, working through songs and styles ranging far and wide - from Bowie to Celtic folk, eventually venturing into the world of original lyrics and music. The result is Red, Green and Blue - the most wonderful way I can imagine of whiling away my time.....
