Martin’s first guitar performance was at his high school graduation in 1981. He froze – halfway through the song he had written – in front of 2000 students and parents. Discouraged, he quit the guitar ‘forever’ then picked it up again 6 months later and has not put it down since. His first guitar teacher encouraged him read music and to study every music style. His influences include Scott Joplin, J.S. Bach, contemporary guitarist Alex Di Grassi and Spanish pianist Isaac Albeniz. Dave has been guitar accompanist at the Great Salt Bay school for 6 years, and has recently begun building the guitars he plays. He will perform several of his own original compositions, plus a gamut of finger-picking guitar tunes, including piano rags, Beatles a la ragtime, Benny Goodman, and just good ol’ finger-pickin’ classics.
