Martin Nelson starred at Club Night

About Martin Nelson
Martin’s highly refined and unique sound exquisitely blends Spanish, Classical and Fingerstyle guitar with light mellow vocals.
Born in 1983, Martin started playing the guitar at the age of four. At fifteen, Martin was awarded the title “Takamine Guitarist of the Year 1998”, taking 1st place at the International Guitar Festival in Bath. His performance in the final was described by head judge, Steve Fairclough as “Embodying the true spirit of fingerstyle guitar”. Martin is still proudly endorsed by Takamine today.
