About The Dixon Brothers

Dorsey Dixon and his brother Howard Dixon were 2 amongst 7 total siblings, all poor mill workers by the time they reached their teen years in North & South Carolina. Dorsey Dixon did not start writing his own rural folk songs until age 32, but songs like "Weaver's Life", "Factory Girl", "Babies in the Mill", "The School House Fire" and "Spinning Room Blues" were infused with struggles of the poor workers in the southern textile mills, and were later rediscovered by labor & song historians.
