Dix Bruce 1952 – 2023
It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Dix Bruce. Dix was a musician, composer, author and award-winning guitarist from the San Francisco Bay Area. He performed and recorded with a variety of Bay Area-based musical groups in varied styles from traditional American country and folk to bluegrass to swing to rock and jazz.
His interest in American folk music, jazz, and original composition blended into a unique vocal and instrumental sound. His exuberant stage personality, along with his driving rhythm and lead guitar work, set the tone for a warm and exciting performances.
Dix’s numerous music instruction books, videos, and CDs have influenced thousands of aspiring musicians young and old. He loved teaching private lessons and at many music camps over the last 50+ years. Much beloved as a musician and especially as a person, Dix’s legacy of joy lives on in the lives he touched.
