Dillon Music Information and Shopping Tips:

Quince Dillon, Great Grandson of William, was a fifer in both the Mexican War and American Civil War. Quince also was an accomplished fiddler. Quince's unit, the 166th Virginia Militia, was eventually incorporated into the 59th Virginia Infantry, which along with other Confederate units, was captured at the Battle of Roanoke Island, North Carolina on February 8, 1862. As the story goes, the Yankee commander of the prison where Dillon was imprisoned held a fiddle contest. The prize was that the fiddler who played the best original composition would be set free. Quince Dillon played a song he composed on the spot and won the contest!

Mr. Dillon has been dealing in musical instruments since he was in the 7th grade. During that time he developed a deep knowledge of antique and vintage instruments, so much so that most of the manufacturers in this country refer questions about history and value of their respective instruments to Mr. Dillon. At one time, Steve Dillon had a personal collection of over 250 vintage/antique trombones. He has also supplied instruments to many Civil War Recreation Bands in this country.
