Les Donaldson has been a musician, songwriter and singer for many years, starting in Ashburton, moving on to bands that played throughout New Zealand, and also playing extensively in Australia.

Now, as a solo act going under the name Th' Art of Cheese, Les is about to launch his first CD, Best Pants. He's back in Ashburton, at the MSA, on Sunday (July 30). His style is simply songs that have stood the test of time, Les says - jazz, big band, swing - a happy, cheesy style from the '60s onwards. It is a very broad style, catering for all ages.
