Martin Homes - Classical Guitarist

This Dorset classical guitarist has been performing at weddings, dinners and in concert for over 25 years. He is a past Young Musician of the Year Semi Finalist and studied classical guitar with Robert Brightmore at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama and John Mills at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama before taking lessons with Benjamin Verdery in New York.

Over the years he has performed for Sunseeker International, ICI, British Airways, on P&O Cruises and at hundreds of weddings all over the UK. He has also performed as part of Yehudi Menuhin’s “Live Music Now” scheme and on BBC 1, BBC 2, ITV, BBC Radio Wales and was featured on BBC Radio 2 in the Young Musicians’ Series.

His repertoire features a mix of the old and the new giving a very balanced programme seasoned guitar lovers and new comers can both enjoy.

Every bride and groom’s wedding is unique so he treats each occasion like a performance. From playing as the bride walks up the Isle, the drinks reception, wedding breakfast or any combination you desire, he is happy to tailor his playing to suit the needs of your day.

"In the week of Rodrigo's death, the inclusion of En Los Trigales made it rather an "in memoriam" piece. Martin created an impressive and memorable tribute to the great man." Classical Guitar Magazine
