Thanks for Supporting Live Music in 2018!!! Gareth Pearson New Album

Dear Friends of MFGS

Thank you for your support of MFGS and a great year of live music in Southeast Michigan!! 

Still time to support
Gareth Pearson

Who is working on a new album and you can help along with maybe get something for the guitar person in your life (even if it is you!!)



In March we started out with our first performer ever and the only 2-time winner of the prestigious U.S. National Fingerstyle Guitar Championship (and a Canadian at that!), Don Ross. Don wowed us with chops and his charm!


In April we were honored by Italy's Stefano Barone who's avant-garde style mesmerized folks at the DIA and Interlochen enough to be invited to perform at Blissfest in July of 2019!  
Stefano's music, along with Pino Forastiere and Sergio Altamura's compositions were used in several of the Freep's Brian Kaufman's movies  including the Pulitzer Prize Winning 'The Wall' 


In May we were fortunate to host Candrat Guitarists Luca Stricagnoli and Calum Grahm at Trinity House Theatre and at 20 Front Street!  Amazing sold out shows


October brought 2 giants of the guitar world to Michigan and MFGS, Andrew York and Alex DeGrassi

Andrew York - 'Home'

Alex deGrassi - 'Cumulus Rising' -


And November brought us
 Trevor Gordon Hall
with several lovely shows and a house concert!  Trevor is off to Greece then home for Christmas and here is the tune he ended his shows with
