Michigan Fingerstyle Guitar Society Updates


Dear Friends of MFGS

Well, as much as we'd like to, we can't book all the great players so Trinity House is helping out by bringing in a fabulous fingerstyle guitarist, Richard Gilewitz  this Saturday, November 7th.  He puts on a great show and if you get a chance to see him you won't be disappointed. 

On Sunday November 8th, our good friend Paul Murphy of Blue Fish Music  is hosting a soon to be annual  Luthier Gathering from 1pm-5pm.   There will be about a dozen amateur and pro luthiers from Michigan, Ohio and Ontario getting together to discuss building, swap tonewoods and show off their instruments. Any friends of MFGS are welcome to check it out and try some guitars. Paul will have the stage and amp set up so there will be some open mike time and with the lesson rooms there will be some quiet places to test drive some guitars.  Paul also does repairs and helpful with advice on anything to do with guitars.

 Of course you know that the remarkable Michael Chapdelaine will close out our 2009 Michigan Fingerstyle Series November 14th (click on our web site, ).  What you don't know yet that on November 14th Michael will be gracing the studio of our good friend Pam Rossi on her Overeasy show,  94.7, WCSX on the dial.  We will be on the show sometime after 9am but just set your alarm to Pam's show @ 7am and blend yourself into the morning (Sat. & Sun)  with a nice mix of great songs. Also Michael will be heading down to 101.9 WDET  to visit with Ann Delisi on her Essential Music Show at 12 noon.  Ann is back on the radio scene in Detroit on Sat. & Sun. from 12 noon to 4pm bringing home grown, eclectic and new 'essential' music to Detroit’s airwaves. 

After Michael’s radio appearances MFGS will sponsor a guitar workshop from 3pm - 5pm at the First United Methodist Church.  You can't ask for a better opportunity to learn from one of the best guitarist in the world.  The cost of the workshop is $40 but workshop attendees can attend Michael's concert for just $10.  Call to reserve a seat.  

Now that we've planned your day on Saturday the 14th, if you need any further info call us @  248-646-4030
