A "mystical and mesmeric" performer, Sam Brown is establishing himself amongst the finest lutenists of his generation.

Originally a student of the inspirational Sasha Levtov, Sam is a graduate of the Royal College of Music. He has performed across the UK with Emma Kirkby and Dowland Works, and in France, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, China and Kenya. His first CD, a chamber concerto recorded with the Moravian Philharmonic, will be released in autumn 2017. He plays a 7-course lute by Michael Lowe, formerly owned by Antony Rooley.
