More Guitar Concerts and some free CDs

  #

Dear Friends of MFGS,

Just a reminder that Peppino D'Agostino's concert on March 8th has been cancelled. If you have purchased tickets off of our www.fingerstyle.org site please email us at michfingerstyle@gmail.com and we will either refund your money or offer you tickets and one of our upcoming concerts. Great News- Our longtime and great friends from Candyrat Records have sent us a treasure trove of CDs to celebrate the last MFGS concert Series. The CDs are from the top fingerstyle guitarists from Pino Forastiere to Don Ross, all the way to Stefano Barone to Gareth Pearson. We will offer guitar workshop attendees the ability to pick one of the CDs and the remainder will be raffled off at our concerts.

If you are interested in a 2 hour guitar workshop with world class guitarists like Michael Chapdelaine, Muriel Anderson, Don Ross and Calum Graham then register at 248-646-4030. The workshop fee is $40 but you receive a $10 discount on the concert ticket and now one of the CDs from Candyrat which go for north of $15 so the workshop will be a $15 out of pocket expense. Thanks to Rob and Holly at Candyrat Records. www.candyrat.com

Here are some upcoming events you might (should) want to see.

  • February 18, 8:00pm Guitar passions featuring Sharon Isbin, Stanley Jordan and Romero Lubambo at the Music Hall Theatre.

  • March 2nd 1:30 PM in Ann Arbor - Grammy Winner Al Petteway & Amy White along with Dakota Dave Hull – Amazing lineup for a great cause. Today, The Breakfast at St. Andrew's serves between 90 and 150 meals daily and is run by a 12-member board of directors. More than 100 volunteers, many from outside the church, donate their time on a regular basis. Every morning from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m., we welcome guests who come for a hot meal and to pack a sandwich lunch for later in the day. Guests include the young and old. They arrive as individuals or in groups. Some are homeless or struggling with addiction or mental illness, but most are working men and women who are trying to make ends meet in a difficult economy. Lend a hand and listen to some great music!!! http://theark.org/3752.html  If you can't go you can still donate !! http://breakfastatstandrews.org/breakfest-concert.htm
  • March 20th to the 23rd - The Detroit Documentary Film Festival http://www.deadlinedetroit.com/articles/6672/free_press_will_stage_a_film_festival_in_march_of_detroit-centric_documentaries#.Uvwus5V3u1s Of note will be Free Press photographer Brian Kaufman's documentary on the now world famous Packard Plant. Of special note will be the music of our friends Pino Forastiere, Stefano Barone and Sergio Altamura who are in the Italian trio ‘Guitar Republic' . Brian had attended their concert in Ferndale and decided that their music fit the raw gritty and brilliantly filmed documentary. It works amazingly well. This one is special. Here is a 6 minute clip from the film. http://www.freep.com/VideoNetwork/2003420229001/Packard-plant
