BiographyA 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 on classical guitar and renaissance lute 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.
