Leonard first picked up an accordion at the age of eleven. He was an Irish dancer for four years from the age of seven with the McElvogue school of Irish Dancing and after winning 120 medals and 17 trophies, he decided to retire and take up the accordion. This was the main instrument used for Irish Dance Music.

His dancing teacher’s sister, Sheena McCaffrey gave Leonard his first lessons on piano accordion with the main focus being bellow movement and how the left hand operated. Leonard then went on to teach himself and took a keen interest in Scottish music through his hero, the great Tom Alexander from the famous Alexander Brothers of Scotland.

Leonard competed in October 2012 at the Perth Accordion and Fiddle Festival an annual event held since 1950. He won and became only the second Englishman to be the all Scotland Accordion Champion. This is the creme de la creme of accordion competitions in Scotland and is a title that Leonard is very proud of. He was awarded the Jimmy Shand Shield by the adjudicator John Carmichael.

Leonard has consequently played extensively across the United Kingdom as a soloist and with his band. As well as playing with his own band, Leonard has played with Newcastle fiddler and folk singer - Tom McConville, who was crowned the BBC Radio 2 Folk Musician of the Year in 2009.

Leonard was also a member of the Happy Cats band from 2011 until they disbanded in 2017.

Since 2011, Leonard has recorded eight professional albums and two DVDs.

The current members of Leonard’s All Star Band are

Leonard Brown - Accordion
Liam Stewart - Piano
Duncan Findlay - Banjo, Guitar
John Sinton - Double Bass
Malcolm Ross - Drums
