Burning Man, Electric Forest Performer to Play Kalamazoo Concert
Dubbed "the world’s premier visionary violinist," Dixon has mesmerized audiences across North America. He's coming to Kalamazoo for an extraordinary concert.
This is much more than a guy playing a fiddle. Dixon improvises on a 5-string electric violin, using looping technology to create a one man symphony. The sound moves people. Here are a few testimonials from Dixon'sViolin.com:
'You are the singularly most profound thing I've ever seen. Thank you for altering my universe.'
'His violin will rip your heart out and set you free.'
'If there could be a soundtrack to my own transformation, it would be Dixon's Violin.'
My curiosity is piqued. A former technology leader and symphony violinist, Dixon walked away from a distinguished career to follow his dream of inspiring people full-time. He has played for audiences at TED events, Michigan's Electric Forest festival and Burning Man. Now, Dixon's Violin is playing a special one-off performance at Milham Park in Kalamazoo.

This is an outdoor event, but attendance is limited to allow for ample social-distancing. Bring your own chairs or blankets. Organizers also say, your "yoga mats, hula hoops or flow toys also welcome." Don't miss the Humankindness tour, with a portion of the proceeds going to #Blacklivesmatter.
A Western Michigan University graduate, cellist Jordan Hamilton also uses technology like loop pedals, sample machines, and vocals to create a sonic landscape of experimental hip-hop, folk, soul, and classical music. Don't be late to the show, or you'll miss his opening set.
