Dean Newton

Dean Newton

Dean first picked up the guitar aged 11 and he’s never looked back! He played his first professional gig at the age of 12, and he has gigged professionally ever since.

Having gained a music degree at the London College of Music, he moved back to Maryport and formed a blues/rock/jazz band called Secure Unit. He is also a member of the West Coast Jazz trio and rock band AWOL, as well as frequently playing in pit bands for musicals. He is hugely talented and extremely versatile – in demand both as a session musician and a guitar teacher.

At this year’s Bowness Bay Blues festival, Dean will be playing an acoustic set, combining his rock, blues and jazz influences and demonstrating his flair as a vocalist as well as a guitarist.
