Mark's affinity with the guitar began at the tender age of 6. His early classical training resulted in a number of junior solo and group performances. By the age of 15, Mark was playing live with his first rock band and throughout the 80's and 90's, his experiences as lead guitarist expanded considerably with regular live performances in different styles (blues, country, funk, rock and disco).
Mark's passion for Flamenco grew upon meeting Jon Salfield, South West Flamenco virtuoso, who became his teacher.
Mark has played both solo and with other artists at numerous venues throughout the ... UK and across the globe combining his love of music and travel - see performance highlights.
His repertoire has its roots in romantic, classical guitar and traditional flamenco music, often spiced with arabic and latin sounds. Mark brings his own dynamic compositions to the mix as well as his arrangements of popular music by artists such as Gipsy Kings, Jesse Cook, Eagles and The Beatles. His music can be sampled on the audio page.
