Upcoming concert

  #
Hi folks.. Looking forward to seeing the members of the Michigan Fingerstyle Guitar Society coming out in force to the upcoming show in Sterling Heights this coming saturday night.  This show is for a great  cause and is a terrific  opportunity for our Society members to show support for each other, which in the performing world is HUGE.  We really need to keep spreading the word of this great genre of music that we're all involved in and the best way to do that is to support as many of our member's gigs as possible and bring friends and family to show them just how marvelous this music is.  Its not just the board members that can do this... its each and every member. So please grab the family and friends and come out to the show.  Its an early night and I know I can speak for the performers in that we'd be honored and very very pleased to see you all.

Tommy Emmanuel in concert

  #

HI folks from the windy city.  Doing good here but just wanted to really recommend that if you can, do NOT avoid seeing Tommy Emmanuel's show when he comes to michigan.  I caught his show here in chicago and it was incredible.  He's a great entertainer and an absolutely incredible guitarist, both in terms of technique and feel.  Do yourselves a favor and don't miss seeing Tommy. 

 

See you all soon!

Farewell Show

  #

Fingerstyle Guitarist and member Merv Collins will be performing his Farewell Show this coming Wednesday Night September 7th at the Coffee Beanery in Ferndale

I've really enjoyed my run at the Coffee Beanery keeping the stage warm while JB and Mark were off enjoying their summer.  I'm moving to the Chicago area next week and will miss being part of the MFGS, although I will be back often to attend the great concerts that are scheduled

I hope all of you will be able to stop in for my last show, and thanks again for making my membership in the Michigan Fingerstyle Guitar Society so enriching and enjoyable.

Thanks,

Merv
