Welcome to LesBrownArtandMusic.co.uk – home to the work of the Lincoln based Artist, Writer and Musician Les Brown.
I hope you enjoy looking at my rich variety of Landscape images, of places throughout the British Isles, as well as the highly detailed Portraits and Floral images, created by me over the last ten years.
I am also a singer, songwriter and musician. I play a number of instruments, including guitar, banjo, bouzouki, ukulele, concertina and harmonica and have recorded eleven CD albums of original compositions. The latest “Almanac” contains eleven previously unrecorded tracks and one track that was previously recorded but now has additional lyrics.
The album designs also contain more examples of my artwork.
I was born in Stockport, Cheshire and moved to Lincolnshire in 1981, where I have since worked as a teacher of both the visual and performing arts, working with students of all ages, including adults.
I have held four large, one-man exhibitions of my work and I am currently working on producing new images for my next solo exhibition at The Sam Scorer Gallery in Lincoln, March 2019.
The last exhibition, entitled ‘Coast to Coast, was seen by over 600 visitors (including people from the USA, Australia and the Far East) and was very well received and a number of original works and prints were purchased.
My work, especially the large pastel Landscapes are very popular and a growing number of people have already become collectors.
As a songwriter and musician, I have performed in Folk Clubs and at Folk Festivals all over Britain and a number of my songs, “Be Sure”, “First and Last Time”, “Young Soldiers Lament”, “Closing Song” and “The Healing Time” have been performed by other folk singers.
Details about commissioning works or obtaining existing works in original or print form are also detailed as well as the purchasing of the music CD albums.
Song lyrics for all of Les Brown’s compositions and the chords used with guitar tunings and other instruments used are also available on request.
