This Flamenco, Latin guitarist is based in the South West and is available for weddings and functions. He started playing classical guitar at an early age. At fifteen a rock influence took hold; he moved to electric guitar and has since played in twelve bands, and performed in the UK, France, Germany, Greece and Australia.
Having taken lessons with leading UK Flamenco Neuvo virtuoso Jon Salfield in 2000, he is now an accomplished Flamenco guitarist, combining elements of his classical and rock experience to form a unique and exciting style.
He plays live on a regular basis, as well as recording music in his own studio. Of live performances, he says:
"I like to provide a good mix of musical styles, so that all tastes are catered for. My live repertoire varies from Classical guitar standards, such as Romanza and Asturias, through interpretations of contemporary music, including many songs from the Beatles, to lively and often percussive Flamenco standards, often delicately incorporating hints of Arabic and Latin influences."

"Hi Geoff, I can honestly say we couldn't have been happier. Communication prior to the event was perfect and he gave us every confidence in his professional approach. On the day of the wedding he arrived exactly when he said he would and set up quickly and efficiently. His performance was superb, some of the most technically proficient playing I've heard. One of the guests even commented that it sounded like two people playing as it was so complex. Mark was very approachable and happy to chat to those guests with an interest in his music.
All in all we were more than happy with our booking in every aspect from the communication to the music on the day and would strongly recommend Mark to anyone. We've since bought his albums and listen to them constantly."
