MFGS Alumni win Grammy

The "Pink Guitar" Album won a Grammy this year for best Pop Instramental Album. If you don't have it, we urge you to get it. We are particularly excited because some of the very best tracks are from some of our alumni performers. List of tracks is provided below, and our alumni are highlighted. Of particular, Ed Gerhard, on of the performers, is our 2005 kick-off artist, performing March 12th, and Laurence Juber will be with us in October. Al Petteway should be joining us again in early 2006. Also, Pat Donohue will be performing at MAMA's coffee house on March 19th. Check our calandar for more information.

In addition, Will Ackerman, who should be joining us in early 2006, won for best New Age Album for his album "Returning".

Both of these awards are simply great news for Fingerstyle Guitar. By the way, our friends and supporters at Solid Air Records producted "Pink Guitar".
A great place to buy both albums is

Acoustic Music Resourses . They offer great selection and service, and are long-standing friends and supporters of the Society.

There's also an excellent book for the Pink Guitar
