" One of the 30 Best Guitarists under 30" - Calum Graham

Dear Friends of MFGS 

Since we are a non profit group we need to ask you for some help promoting.  If you can post a flyer at work or a coffee shop/music store for us it certainly will go a long way in helping us continue to bring in such elite guitarists from around the world.  
  Email us at and we will send you a flyer/flyers via post office or email.  

Starting off our fall season on October 8th

 MFGS Presents Calum Graham 
 Saturday October 8th 

at the PLAT Theater in Pontiac  
(Pontiac's Little Art Theater) 
a new venue in the revitalized downtown Pontiac!   

Tickets are $20 online at
Doors at 7:30 and show at 8pm
The PLAT Theatre is at 47 North Saginaw in Pontiac
accessible from M-59 in either direction & Just down the street from the multi-million dollar renovation of the 
Flagstar Strand Center for the Performing Arts and Slows BBQ.

We were fortunate to catch Calum before he heads off the the Harp Guitar Gathering in Connecticut hosted by Stephen Bennett.  Calum Graham, at age 23, was named one of the ' 30 Great Guitarists under 30' by Acoustic Guitar Magazine in 2014.  So he's all of 25 now and has a new CD release 'Tabula Rasa' and is performing all over the world!  

Here is one of his new pieces called phoenix rising 

We are hosting Calum at a new emerging venue in Pontiac called the PLAT Theater.
