  1. Mark came and performed a Recital of Spanish Guitar Music at our church, and we made a full evening of it, with wine and tapas. He was superb, everyone really enjoyed the music and the selection of pieces which he chose.

  2. Mark, we loved your concert this afternoon in our church. We were spellbound for 50 minutes of exquisite playing followed by a delicious tea laid on by church members. Thanks to the event we made much needed funds for our church whilst loving the whole experience.

  3. What a beautiful recital Mark gave in Sawbridgeworth on the evening of our flower festival. Such sensitive playing, with interesting introductions. It was a real treat. Highly recommended!
