About Louis

Experienced live & studio Spanish Guitarist from London and living in Bristol, providing a relaxed atmosphere for private celebrations.
Spanish Guitarist
Public liability insurance of £1 million

Louis Martin is a versatile composer and prize-winning performer, specialising in Spanish & Classical Guitar. He has experience performing for over a decade in many settings such as at a Bishop's 80th birthday party, in the orchestra for Bugsy Malone, and at Societe Generalé for International Music Day. He has studied Composing for Film at Goldsmith’s College, London, furnishing his compositional techniques under award-winning film composer Mariano Nunez-West, but nevertheless deems himself a self-taught musician having developed a unique style of playing the guitar from a young age. His love of the instrument grew listening to pop, rock, folk, and jazz music, and masters such as Johnny Marr, Walter Becker, Joni Mitchell, Bert Jansch, all had a profound effect on his composing and playing abilities. He later looked deeper into the origins of the guitar, and from there on began his investigations into Spanish music, studying the great works of Francisco Tarrega, Fernando Sor, Heita Victor-Lobos, Andres Segovia and British classical guitar player Julian Bream. He now wishes to share his love of the guitar, with its great history and beautiful sound with you, and to provide the perfect backdrop to your special event.

We were very happy with this booking and Louis was very good and everyone was very impressed with his music. He followed our request and played in the background while people were eating their lunch. He was very professional, punctual and played very well and exactly the type of music we have requested. I will definitely recommend Louis for booking and he will be my first choice for our next event.

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I'll always do my best to be flexible to make sure your event runs smoothly as possible. If you could let me know as early as you know, that would be much appreciated.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Yes! Given that there is a PA system at the event, I can offer this service for free.

How much time do you need to set up?

I like to set up an hour before the performance time. This is to set up my amp or the PA ( if needed), and to check the acoustics, stool, etc.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

Most certainly you can!

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

I can bring an amp for my electro-classical guitar, if a PA system is not available at the venue and a louder sound is required.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Certainly! Unlike many acts I do not charge for this request, but it will depend on the length/complexity of the piece and the time I will have to learn it before the event date.
