BOLTON: Weave Room Blues, history of the Dixon brothers | Archive

It seems that when we hear someone sing or tell a story, it means more if these people have actually experienced the events. In other words, it comes from the heart. Such was the case with the Dixon brothers who wrote and sang songs about real events that occurred right here in Richmond Co. or the southeastern section of our great country.

Dorsey Dixon was born on October 14, 1897. Howard Dixon was born in June 1903. They were just two of seven children in the Dixon family living in Darlington, South Carolina at the time.

JA Bolton is a member of the NC Storytelling Guild, a member of the Anson Co. Writer’s Club, a member of the Anson and Richmond Co. Historical Societies, and co-author of the new book “Just Passing Time Together.”
