This Saturday, Trevor Gordon Hall - This Sunday Picking Party

MFGS presents

 

Trevor Gordon Hall

 

The Michigan Fingerstyle Guitar Society was founded in 2001 by local guitarists who had a profound appreciation of fingerstyle guitar music.  The mission of MFGS is to promote fingerstyle guitar through performances, workshops and goodwill.  We have been fortunate to host over 80 concerts and guitar workshops in the last 12 years as well as 3-4 Picking Parties each year. This Saturday we are bringing in Candyrat Recording Artist Trevor Gordon Hall.  Although not well known in these parts, part of our mission is to bring up and coming guitarists to Michigan in order to promote their music and allow our members the opportunity to see some of these musicians earlier in their career. Trevor has certainly impressed many famous musicians and his list of great reviews is listed here.   http://www.trevorgordonhall.com/press.html

One of our favorites reviews is from Windham Hill Record Founder William Ackerman who says  

"Trevor Gordon Hall is one of the few post-Michael Hedges guitarists who has managed to incorporate that vast repository of innovation while having an artistic voice strong enough to steadfastly avoid imitation. However technically proficient Trevor is, he is not one of the swarm of guitarists who revel in guitar gymnastics for their sake alone. His technique follows artistic expression as it should. Trevor is capable of a range of styles while having every note seem to express something sincere and meaningful to him. This is a fine debut from a guitarist we will need to pay attention to. Will Ackerman - Grammy winning guitarist/composer and producer, founded the influential Windham Hill Records

 MFGS will be sponsoring a Picking Party from 3pm to 6pm on Sunday February 10th at Bluefish Music in Plymouth. There is no charge for this event and this is a non-competitive, supportive environment where guitarists of all levels can sit around and play, watch, listen and even pluck of few of Paul Murphy's fabulous guitar collection. And if your guitar needs some attention remember Paul does repairs and as a builder, player and owner of a guitar store you can't find better advice!!
