Dear Friends of MFGS

Trevor Gordon Hall - Good news and perhaps bad news?  If you have tickets for Trevor's upcoming  house concert consider this good news.  If you don't then unfortunately the concert has completly sold out.   But you can hear him by picking up his album at www.candyrat.com or use the link through our friends at Minor 7th which helps the artist and the folks at Minor 7th who do these great review! http://www.minor7th.com/

“One of the world’s most distinctive and influential guitarists." The Washington Post

Winner of the Independent Music Award, in the Live Performance Album category for his latest triple live album "Encore" (2014), "Rose d'Or" of the Montreux Festival for his first album, "Près de Paris,” "Best World Music Guitar Player " by Guitar Player Magazine, Pierre Bensusan is recognized as one of the premier musicians of our time. If “World Music” is music that pays tribute to the spirit of a collection of human beings through distinct rhythms, traditional instruments and harmonic colors, French-Algerian guitarist, singer and composer Pierre Bensusan can be recognized as one of the most eloquent world musicians today.   http://www.cuaa.edu/knowconcordia/arts/music.html
