Martin needs no introduction in the world of acoustic artists. Widely regarded as one of the world’s finest finger style players, his career is filled with beautiful music spanning seemingly endless genres, styles and sources of inspiration.
I’ve been fortunate enough to know Martin since I was based in Edinburgh more than 8 years ago, introduced by our great friend Ian Brown during a road trip guitar tour. It wasn’t until 2016 that Martin and I starting discussing guitars at length.
Martin now owns and plays a Tasmanian Blackwood Tirga Mhor, an instrument that we developed after many of these meetings. Both simply fascinated by guitars and the possibilities - What if?
