When you hear him play, you will hear the influence of Michael Hedges, but Pino is no Michael Hedges wanna be. He’s a unique performer who’s advancing the meaning of fingerstyle ever bit as much as Hedges did. Simply put, Pino is at the leading edge of fingerstylests who incorporate the most advanced techniques of this so called “heavy mental” approach to playing. You might say that while Pino was influenced by Hedges, he has clearly picked up where Michael left off.

MFGS is honored and very pleased to sponsor Pino for an intimate house concert at the Barn. A friend once told of seeing Barbara Streisand in a small club in New York. He couldn’t understand how she could not be famous since she was so talented. Shortly thereafter she rose to fame as the broader public realized her talent. We feel that we are getting a rare opportunity to see this international talent before the rest of the world catches on. We believe he is destined to become one of the greats! We hope you will join us.

Directions:The Barn is on the South side of Walton Blvd., just East of Adams. If you know where Meadowbrook Music Theatre is, just go East (toward downtown Rochester) about a half a mile. It’s next to the Church. Pull all the way to the back for the parking lot, or park on any available grass. Alternatively park in the church parking lot if you can’t find a space. Advanced tickets are strongly recommended! We only have space for about 50 people, and when we're full, we're full.
