Trevor Gordon Hall - March 23rd, 24th and 25th

  #

Dear Friends of MFGS

We would like to invite you to start out our 2017 Spring Season with Trevor Gordon Hall.

In 2014 Acoustic Guitar Magazine rated Trevor as one of the top 30 guitarist under 30 in the world! Trevor hails from Philadelphia and has performed all over the world. His concerts from Carnegie Hall to his performances at the California and Canadian Guitar Festivals Trevor certainly has created quite a following amongst fans and world class musicians. His music ranges from melodic to edgy and he is on a mission to ride the fine line of being accessible yet adventurous.  He simultaneously and flawlessly incorporates a large Kalimba or thumb piano on the lower bout of his guitar creating an instrumental sound you won't hear anywhere else.  We are lucky to have Trevor for 3 shows in Michigan


Thursday March 23rd

 Concert will be at St Andrews Church at 323 S State St, Big Rapids, MI 49307.  Call Galloup Guitars for more information (800) 278-0089

"....Creative imagination resides, as well as flourishes, in certain artists and it certainly does so in Trevor Gordon Hall.  Ingenuity is something that always causes surprise and this gentleman's abilities are totally  exceptional "                                       Jazz guitar legend Pat Martino

"...Trevor takes acoustic solo guitar to a new level. I'm listening to his new album 'Mind Heart Fingers' right now! Wow! Beautiful. Astonishing. Inspiring .  .....Well done Trevor!"                       Paul Richards - California Guitar Trio

Goran Ivanovic and Fareed Haque

April 28th & 29th 2017

Performing at Trinity House Theatre & 20 Front Street

Tickets on sale soon!!

Both Fareed Haque and Goran Ivanovic are amazing virtuoso guitarists in their own right.

Fareed Haque's background is classical and jazz along with contemporary with world flavors.  Your ears will be in for a treat just as audiences around the world have heard Fareed perform while touring with Sting to being named 'Best World Guitarist'  in 2009 by Guitar Player Magazine Readers Choice Award!

Goran Ivanovic is a nylon-stringed guitar virtuoso. Goran studied with Eliot Fisk and Joaquin Clerch at Mozareum University in Salzburg Austria and now hails from Chicago.  His nylon string sound flows so well with his Eastern European influences.  Goran has taught at Carnegie Mellon, Princeton, Cornell and other major universities as a guest artist.   

This will be an amazing blend of sounds from all over the world almost creating their own genre. Also.........Fareed is awaiting a brand new jazz guitar being created by Bryan Galloup and Sam Guidry at Michigan's own Galloup Guitar School of Lutherie in Big Rapids Michigan http://www.galloupguitars.com/ . Anxious to see this baby!!
