Sam Brown - Guitarist

Profile Information

My location (city and country)
London, UK
About me
A young musician regarded as an “engaging and popular performer”, classical guitarist Sam Dixon Brown has been commended by the likes of Leo Brouwer, Stepan Rak and Pavel Steidl, and a string of performances in the UK and abroad have earned his playing a reputation for “flair, personality and confidence”. Winner of the 2011 Chichester Music Festival Award and the 2012 West Sussex Youth Music Award, Sam – having studied at the Regis School of Music and the Junior Royal College of Music, under a full bursary – combines collaborations with composers and sound engineers, and a fledgling solo career, with studies at the Royal College of Music, London.

Sam is a promoted artist with Akouson Classical and Talent Unlimited, and an honorary member of the West Sussex Guitar Club. He plays a cedar lattice guitar by Pablo Requena.

Well, it's been a while since last I posted... this March I won the 2012 West Sussex Youth Music Award.

The award has a sentimental value for me, because part of the prize is to give a recital in next year's concert lineup at the Regis School of Music, where I took my first lessons. 
Thanks to luthier Pablo Requena whose excellent guitar - his first cedar lattice - I used in the competition, and am now playing.

Gitarrespielen

So, having just returned from a week's spotlighting near Berlin, I thought I might just write a little here - that's what a blog is for, I suppose.

My hometown is twinned with a borough about half an hour from Berlin called Trebbin, and last year I performed for the twinning reception when they came to England. This year I was invited to return the favour, giving two spotlight performances at the various formalities in Germany: one for the members of the twinning association, the…

So, hello everyone!

I thought I would just write "thank you" here. I think a classical music network is a fantastic idea and I'm pleased to be a part of it! I'm certain this will be a very music-filled year, and I'm looking forward to the chance to meet new musicians and to perform around London. Well, all the very best, and thanks again!
Sam Brown.
