Martin Foote is a gifted guitarist from the Blue Mountains of NSW, who plays with a passion and flair that turns heads whenever he takes the stage. 

Growing up in a musical family, Martin began playing guitar at the age of ten, taught by his father, Nigel Foote, who gave him a strong foundation in folk-blues fingerpicking styles. 

Through meeting guitarists Joe Robinson and Michael Fix, Martin discovered the work of the legendary Australian guitarist, Tommy Emmanuel. Over the next few years, Martin attended Tommy's guitar workshop and two residential guitar camps, at the end of which he performed Tommy's arrangement of Classical Gas with the Master himself.

Martin has performed for Blue Mountains Music Festival, Sydney Blues & Roots Festival, Sydney Royal Botanical Gardens, Tamworth Country Music Festival, Katoomba Winter Magic Festival, Horizon Festival, Hunters Hill Club, Katoomba RSL, Blue Mountains Folk, plus Australian Citizenship ceremonies for Blue Mountains City Council.

After winning the Busking Competition at the 2015 Winter Magic Festival, Martin composed several instrumental pieces and used the prize – a day's recording at Songcave Studios – to record his seven-track EP, 'Moving On' which was released at the 2018 Blue Mountains Music Festival.

Martin has taught guitar for Waratah School of Music (Blue Mountains Music Academy) and at Blue Mountains Guitar School since 2015.
