Leigh Newton is a songwriter/entertainer from SA who works in both secular and Christian contexts. Having been a primary school teacher for many years, as of 2020 Leigh has more time for music.
He has released nine albums variously for adults and children, probably being most known around Australia for ‘Christmas In The Scrub’ which places the Christmas story firmly in Australian outback and town. Its sequel, ‘Christmas in the Shed’, a more urban recount was published in 1999.
Songwriting for church contexts remains a passion.
