A True Music Man - Bruce Dalzell
With the reputation as The Music Man, Bruce Dalzell, an Athens, Ohio native makes music a priority and loves to share it with the community around him. I met Bruce for the first time at the weekly Front Room Open Mic Nights in the Baker University Center coffee shop on Friday nights. Having a good amount of friends participating in the event, and participating once myself, Bruce and I got to know of each other. I asked him if I could work on a Slice of Life piece on his life and he happily granted me permission. I was able to shadow Bruce about his daily schedule for two days and I couldn't have picked a more kind-hearted subject. His passion for music, and his love of sharing and teaching others about music seemed to brighten up everyone around him. Students look up to him, and admire his work. It was such a joy to spend some time with Bruce and I hope to do so again someday.
