Jackie Dixon

The musical traditions of Scotland were taken to Canada, in the middle-1960s, by vocalist Jackie Dixon. An associate from the Mike Madden Duo as well as the Bonnie Scots before departing the Hamilton/Blantyre region near Glasgow, he continuing to try out traditional Scottish music with a fresh band, alternately referred to as Sullivan’s Gypsies and Ryan’s Luxury, featuring banjo participant/organist Fergus O’Byrne and guitarist/mandolinist Dermot O’Reilly. Their 1969 record, Have a good laugh And Cry, included such traditional Scottish music as “North Lighting Of Aberdeen”, “Scotland Ra Daring”, “Dundee Weaver” and “Lizzy Lindsay”, and a brogue-heavy rendition of Woody Guthrie’s “This Property Is Your Property”. Currently surviving in Huntsville, Ontario, Dixon continues to be active. Furthermore to carrying on to sing Glasgow’s road songs, he acts as a drum sargent and bass drummer in the Huntsville Legion Tube Band.
