Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bruce Langhorne (born c. 1938) is an American folk musician. He was active in the Greenwich Village folk scene in the 1960s, primarily as a session guitarist for folk-rock albums and performances. The title character of Bob Dylan's song "Mr. Tambourine Man" is inspired by Langhorne, who used to play a large Turkish frame drum in performances and recordings. The drum, which Langhorne had purchased in a music store in Greenwich Village, had small bells attached around its interior, giving it a jingling sound much like a tambourine. Langhorne used the instrument most prominently with Richard and Mimi Fari a. The drum is now in the collection of Seattle's Experience Music Project. In addition to inspiring the title character of "Mr. Tambourine Man," Langhorne played the electric guitar countermelody on the song.show more
