He was also the maker of Brother Bru Bru's Hot Sauce, which I purchased a bottle of once for my brother, who is also named Bruce. Bruce Langhorne was a sideman on a folk singer's recording session in my studio long ago. Not a flash guitarist, but very tasty & appropriate for what the songs required. Pleasant fellow, & a guy with a great history in music. RIP.

That goes here too.

Those Dylan songs the article mentioned were on an LP that didn't list any personel, so I was unaware of just who he was.

As those tunes are "burned" into my brain, I can hear what he did on them as I'm typing this. smile

RIP Bruce. Good job.

Not really aware of his career overall but I def remember his playing on several early Bob D tracks.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bruce_Langhorne
Whence we learn this:
The title character of Bob Dylan's song "Mr. Tambourine Man" was inspired by Langhorne, who used to play a large Turkish frame drum in performances and recordings.[3][4] The drum, which Langhorne 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 on recordings by Richard and Mimi Fariña.[5] The drum is now in the collection of the Experience Music Project, in Seattle, Washington.
