Synopsis

This book traces the life of Dr J H Reginald Dixon, the Yorkshire born organist, composer and inventor, who moved to Lancaster as a young man and adopted the town as his own. A well-loved character, easily recognised by his white hair, beard, earrings and high-heeled shoes, Dr Dixon touched the lives of many through his music and teaching. Written by a former pupil of Dr Dixon, this book records some of the recitals, concerts, lectures and music festivals the great man was involved with, and evaluates a selection of his compositions, many of which were performed to great acclaim. An Adopted Lancastrian contains information and copies of original documents not previously accessible to the public and will appeal to musicians, social historians and the general reader.
