Dixon’s Violin

We are very excited to be bringing Dixon’s Violin as our main musical
entertainment! Dixon’s Violin is the world’s premier visionary violinist, Dixon’s life mission is to inspire people – and he has done so across North America, including giving two TED talks/performances, ten years at Burning Man, plus radio, TV, and film appearances.

Dixon walked away from a distinguished career to follow his dream full-time, and invented a whole new music genre. Based on his classically-trained violin mastery, Dixon now improvises on a 5-string electric violin with a looper to create an all-live one-man symphony.

Guided by his remarkable personal story of life transformation, he shows the beauty of doing something seemingly impossible. Dixon’s passionate energy will enchant, mesmerize, and inspire you!

Dixon’s Violin will perform and speak in the Redstone Room from 9-10:30 pm. 


Performing powerful, diverse originals and colorfully re-imagined covers and remixes, MRG will take the Redstone Room Stage following Dixon’s Violin. Visit their Facebook page for more information on this local band.
