 Stephen Bennett
in Concert & Workshop
January 14th

Start the new year off with one of the very best!
Stephen Bennett is one of the finest guitarists playing today, and a favorite of the MFGS. His music is evocative, melodic, subtle and complex. His Beatles covers are amongst the best ever done, while his origional compositions are equally extraodinary. His technique is flawless, and his stage presence is delightful. He's one of those rare artists who's equally appealing to both the sophisticated fingerstyle guitar player and their grandmothers.

Whether playing his great-grandfather's harp guitar, his 1930 National Steel or a standard 6-string, Stephen Bennett is a guitarist to hear. His playing has won awards and critical praise. In live performance and on record, his diverse musical influences and interests are joined with a three decade long love affair with the sound of guitar strings.

Stephen's recently released CD contains some of the very best fingerstyle arrangements of Beatles songs ever recorded. Rumor has it another is on the way. Highly recommended.

For guitar players, Stephen's workshops are amongst the very best we've ever hosted. He is simply a brilliant teacher. Moreover, he teaches creativity as much or more than technique. Everyone who attended his last workshop bumped their playing more than a notch! His workshops are suitable for all levels of players.

Space for the workshop is limited, and advanced paid reservations are required. Contact Jeb McIntyre at 248 705.1390 (leave message) or for reservations.
