Green on Green: A four-piece band of highly experienced musicians which reflect the Blues style and Music of Sixties’ guitar icon Peter Green and Fleetwood Mac and Classic Blues.
Martin Green: Guitar
Inspired by jazz and early blues guitarists, Martin began playing guitar in the late 1950s. He met Peter Green while working as a guitar technician in London’s West End. The two men became friends when Peter exchanged blues guitar licks with jazz guitar runs from Martin.
Martin started his band career with Ian Lloyd Bluesmen before joining the Chicago Sunsets (later the Sunsets) who were pro-active in and around London blues clubs in the 1960s, supporting musicians including Peter Green, John Mayall and Johnny Copeland.
Forty-three years later, after a chance meet up with old friend Tony Williams who had played bass and handled the vocals in the Sunsets, came the idea of forming Green on Green, rekindling their mutual love for Peter Green and the blues.
