The 2021 Summit reception will be held Wednesday, March 16, 5:30 p.m. The reception is free to registered attendees and their spouses.
Join us for a memorable evening with TapRooT®’s favorite rock star! Dixon and his band will be performing live at the 2021 reception.
Born in Sault Sainte Marie ON, TaprooT® Summit favorite Carl Dixon remains one of Canada’s stellar singers and musicians. He’s fronted and played with some of Canada’s most iconic bands including *The Guess Who*, *Coney Hatch* and *April Wine*.
Carl scored his first record deal in the 80’s with Coney Hatch, The videos played on MTV as Coney Hatch toured across North America as opener for *Iron Maiden*, *Judas Priest* and many more. His music career took him on the highs and lows of rock n roll through the 90s and into the new millennium. While lead singer of *The Guess Who*, Carl was critically injured in a car accident in Australia in 2008 where he sustained 52 injuries. His remarkable comeback from death’s door first as a solo artist, then in a reunion with *Coney Hatch* to score a new record deal, (Coney Hatch Four, 2013) has only been topped by his return as front man of *The Guess Who* for two special shows in the USA in January 2016.
Carl is a published author of “Strange Way to Live – A Story of Rock ‘N Roll Resurrection“ (Dundurn Publishing). He’s a prolific songwriter and inspirational speaker.
Carl lives in the woodland wilds of Haliburton, Ontario, Canada.
In addition to stellar entertainment and refreshments there will also be prize giveaways. Everyone has a chance in the prize drawings but you must be there to win it.
