Pat Donohue Workshop - Last Call

  #

My fellow guitar lovers, we need your help. Too many of us are not participating in the workshops and concerts. We can't do this without you! If you've wondered if the workshops are for you, this is a perfect opportunity to find out. Pat is an extraordinary player, and a wonderfully funny and charming guy too. I promise you'll have a lot of fun.

Below is Elderly's description of Pat Donohue's workshop. Hard to improve upon it but to say that Pat is one of the finest fingerstyle guitarists playing today. He's won all the awards (Winfield, Grammy), has several major lable CD's in the market, and has one of the most coveted gigs in the world - house guitar player for the weekly NPR radio show the Prairie Home Companion.

Pat's workshop promises to be one of the best ever, and suitable for players of all levels. But for that to happen we need interested participants to let us know now. If we don't have enough interest by the close of business Monday we won't be able to make this workshop happen.

I urge you to sign up if you have any interest at all. I promise you won't be disappointed. Tickets are $35 for members, $40 for non-members. The workshop will be held at 1:00 p.m. at the United Methodist Church on Sunday March 11th.

"Opening Pat Donohue's file evokes a trip down memory lane--often more than one trip. Our file on Pat--which grows thicker with each appearance he makes in the area for concerts, workshops or festivals--is filled with praise for his playing--including but not limited to his long-standing Prairie Home Companion gig--his songwriting, and his teaching.

Pat Donohue's Fingerstyle Blues Guitar Workshop will be geared toward intermediate-level students who want to infuse their playing with the sounds of the blues greats. In this two-hour hands-on workshop, he will teach tunes, licks, turnarounds, and the stylistic hallmarks of legends like Mississippi John Hurt, Big Bill Broonzy, Robert Johnson, Blind Blake and others, along with useful left-hand chord shapes and right-hand oves that will make anyone's blues playing come alive.

One of the articles on Pat appeared in the now-defunct Capital Times in December, 1997, prior to one of Pat's free in-store
concert at Elderly; it reads in part: "...his playing has impressed such knowledgeable fans as Chet Atkins, who called him 'one of the greatest finger pickers in the world today'." Titled "Finger Pickin' Good," the unattributed article continues: "Donohue's fluid style embraces folk, country, blues and jazz styles, and onstage he's known to dive into anything from a satiric Beatles medley to a blues treatment of The Star Spangled Banner."

If you haven't seen Pat in concert, or haven't attended one of his workshops, maybe this description of him will help you understand a little better the man and some of the reasons for his popularity and success. We found this on the website of master guitar builder Kevin Ryan, about Pat:

"...audience members call out any song they can think of. And then Pat just starts playing it. And not just stumbling through a makeshift melody. He actually plays it like some rollicking, wild thing he has worked on for years.... Part of it naturally is the sheer inventiveness of a guy who can just start playing a complicated song out of the thin air right on the spot. And part of the wonder is the sheer exuberance of Donohue himself. There is no mistaking the main point of music when Pat plays. Music is for having fun."

Then, contrasting Pat with artists who are careful to not "miss" a note, not take a chance, he adds, "Not Pat. Let the notes fly and let the joy fall where it may, devil be damned." And yet Pat can be described as meticulous. Sign up and you'll see.

Billy McLaughlin in Concert

Billy McLaughlin will make history when he performs for the Michigan Fingerstyle Guitar Society on Saturday, November 12th. McLaughlin enjoyed a rising career complete with Top 10 Billboard charting releases (Narada Records/Virgin) and non-stop national touring when he was struck down in 2001 by a mysterious and incurable disease that attacked his fretboard wrist and hand. Rather than quit, McLaughlin has been quietly re-learning his virtuoso repertoire - left-handed! His first-ever-entirely-left-handed-concert is arguably the acoustic guitar comeback event of all-time.

Routinely compared to Stanley Jordan and Michael Hedges, McLaughlin uses unorthodox tunings and techniques, playing with both hands on the fretboard. His compositions have been called "melodic" and "accessible" by the likes of Billboard Magazine, Acoustic Guitar Magazine and the Washington Post. A documentary film, Rewired, is currently in production tracking McLaughlin's journey back to the stage and will be shooting this concert. For the complete rundown on McLaughlin's story, please visit www.billymclaughlin.com

Billy McLaughlin Workshop - Sunday Nov 13th 2005
1pm-3pm 
22331 Woodward Ave
First United Methodist Church, Ferndale, MI

Billy McLaughlin will conduct an acoustic guitar workshop on Sunday November 13th at 1pm at the First United Methodist Church in Ferndale.

Developing and intermediate level players are encouraged to attend. Additional topics include practical use of alternate tunings, guitar amplification, and a music business question/answer segment. 

Workshop space limited. Cost is $35 for MFGS members, $40 for the General Public. Contact Mark Hawks for reservations or info.

Rochester Folk Workshop Store to Close

  #

It is with saddness that we report our friends Vince and Karen Sadovsky have decided to close the retail portion of their business, but fortunately Vince will continue to offer lessons. For those who don't know him, Vince is one of the few true "Master Class" guitar teachers in the area. He's played professionally for decades, and has forgotten more than most of us will ever know. He's very busy, so get on the waiting list now. You won't regret any time spent learning from Vince.

As part of the closing, they are offering huge discounts on all their retail merchandise, including strings, books (they have a lot of excellent fingersyle guitar books), cases, stands, straps, etc. This is your chance to pick up that hard to find item as rock bottom prices.

They intend to be closed by November 18th, so get over there soon. Tell them Jeb sent you!

You can get all the location information from their website:  http://www.rochesterfolk.com/

Update on the Motor City Boogie Woogie & Blues Festival

Motor City Boogie Woogie & Blues Fest Shakes It Up

FARMINGTON HILLS, MICH., SEPT. 7, 2005 The 7th annual Motor City Boogie Woogie & Blues Festival is double the pleasure. This year’s concert has more twists and turns than ever.

Promoters are returning the concert to the Royal Oak Music Theatre, for a twin bill on Fri. Oct. 14 and Sat., Oct. 15. Doors open at 7 pm, show at 8 pm, both nights. The concert was last held at ROMT in 2001, as a 9-11 firefighter tribute. It later moved to Detroit’s Historic Redford Theatre.

Changing venues and broadening the scope of the concert are just two big news facts. “It’s a fascinating spot for this new concert series – lots of seating options, great parking and wonderful street ambiance that our boogie-and blues crowd likes,” said local entrepreneur and businessman Ron Harwood of the venue change. Harwood is president and founder of Farmington Hills-based American Music Research Foundation and the internationally known design firm Illuminating Concepts. The festival has been his brainchild since the first concert was held seven years ago at Ferndale’s Magic Bag. AMRF is the festival producer; and DaimlerChrysler continues as the major sponsor for the third year.

For the first time, the increasingly popular concert venue is adding a second night. Friday night’s show spotlights pure boogie woogie roots artists. Michael Kaeshammer, Toronto keyboard wiz and audience fave, headlines the Boogie night. Missing in action for two years, Kaeshammer has been gathering international awards and recording new material. The supporting boogie cast includes keyboard sensation Kenny ‘Blues Boss’ Wayne, from Vancouver; international artists Philippe LeJeune from Toulouse, France and sensation in the making Silvan Zingg from Manno-Lugano, Switzerland.

Saturday night’s concert features “Gen 2 Blues”. Second generation blues performers are those who follow in their parent’s footsteps. The big news is the appearance of Jackson 5 star Tito Jackson who shows the Detroit audience his blues side! Tito is a phenomenal blues player who learned in his formative years from his dad and then while in Detroit recording for Motown.

Also look for the Phantom Blues Band, who have backed up Taj Mahal and are part of the Blues Brothers touring band; also Bernard Allison (Luther Allison’s son); and Kenny Neal, offspring of blues harmonica legend Raful Neal; Tasha Taylor, whose fabled father, Johnnie Taylor, is known as The Wailer.

Both shows will be taped for national broadcast on PBS and their 350 affiliates.

The festival will pay tribute to Johnny Johnson, former Chuck Berry keyboard virtuoso, who died in April. Proceeds also will benefit the American Music Research Foundation, a 503-C non-profit which assists needy musicians. Donations also will be accepted for Hurricane Katrina victims.

Tickets are $35; at tickets.com. Or call 800-919-6272. Tickets also are available at the ROMT box office through Oct. 15. A cash bar and adjacent parking are available.

Friends, the Fingerstyle Guitar Society needs your help. Our concert and workshop promotion is done entirely through word of mouth and e-mail newsletters like this one. We urgently need your help identifying people who would be interested in our concerts and workshops.

If everyone reading this newsletter provided just ten e-mail addresses, we would be well on the way toward ensuring that all of our concerts and workshops are fully sold out, and ensuring that the society can continue to provide extraordinary Fingerstyle Guitar entertainment in acoustically excellent venues at reasonable prices.

Send your list to either Mark.Hawks@Fingerstyle.org or Jeb@Fingerstyle.org

We are not spammers, and of course always encourage recipients to unsubscribe if they are not interested, but if you feel uncomfortable providing e-mail addresses, please forward this newsletter to all your friends whom you think would enjoy our programs.

Erika Luckett – House Concert in Rochester April 1st

  #

Post Concet Update: Erika Luckett is definitly a Fingerstyle guitarist! She's as good or better than any of the artists we've hosted to date, and an amazing singer as well. Highly recommended.

Michigan Fingerstyle Guitar Society board member Jeb McIntyre is hosting a house concert for Erika Luckett On Friday April 1st. While not strictly a fingerstyle guitarist, singer songwriter Erika Luckett's guitar playing is extraordinary. This should be a great concert.

 -San Francisco Bay Guardian

"Crisp, enticing vocals, exceptionally adept guitar work, an intriguing sensibility of Latin flavor and poetic lyricism that thrives on simplicity are staples of Luckett's most recent work. . . .This album will surely raise eyebrows as one of the more artistically complete and enjoyable of the year."

Stephen Bennett in Concert May 14th, Workshop May 15th

Stephen Bennett in Concert


5/14/2005   (8:00 PM - 10:00 PM)
Location:
First United Methodist Church
22331 Woodward Avenue
Ferndale, MI 48220
 Stephen Bennett
in Concert.
May 14th
Workshop May 15th



While less well known than some of our artists, Stephen Bennett is one of the finest guitarists playing today. 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.

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.
