Antoine Dufour Tickets Back On Sale Now

  #

Dear Friends of MFGS

We had a glitch in our web page for a few days and just wanted you to know that we are back up and running.  You should be running to!  Running to www.fingerstyle.org to buy tickets for Antoine Dufour's 2 Southeast Michigan appearances!!


Antoine Dufour is one of the few guitarists in the world today that has mastered the guitar fingerboard with melody, harmonics and percussion. To be able to integrate these components of music on one guitar is remarkable!


This is Antoine’s first appearance here since his 2013 sold out shows.


Friday September 20th @ Trinity House Theatre in Livonia Michigan

Info at www.fingerstyle.org

 


Saturday September 21st at 20 Front Street in Lake Orion Michigan!

https://20frontstreet.com/event/antoine-dufour/




Don’t miss the former 2006 International Guitar Competition Winner in one of his rare Metro Detroit appearances.  It will be a memorable experience!


Here is Antoine performing ' These Moments'
