Update on Pat Donohue's Concert and Workshop.


Dear Friends of MFGS

Just to let you know that there are a couple dozen tickets still available for Pat Donohue’s concert this coming Saturday, September 26th at Trinity House Theatre in Livonia.  We can’t stress enough on what a great guitarists and entertainer that Pat Donohue is.  Maybe another quote would help sway you to come out and see one of America’s great guitarists. 

His playing is rich with active, nimble bass lines that would in themselves seem to give a guitarist plenty to do. Laid against them are the complex chord work and elaborate, deftly-executed single-note runs. It's about as much harmonious sound as can be produced by two hands, wood, and strings...”Los Angeles Times

And Just as important!  We get questions on why we don’t have any more guitar workshops?  MFGS took a break from sponsoring concerts for a while and along with that we backed off of the guitar workshops.  Pat Donohue asked if we would sponsor one of his workshops and he is one of the preeminent guitar teachers in the world! This is an opportunity for guitarists of all levels to sit with him for 2 hours, watch him perform, have him watch you play, learn some theory, learn some licks, ask any questions that you want and then get $10 off his concert ticket price!  Sounds like a deal to me! 

We had posted our old number 248-646-4030 and there seems to have been a glitch in signing up so if you tried to call and didn’t’ get through here is a new number and an email address.  We do need a minimum of 4-5 guitarists so call or text 248-953-6223 or email   Guitar workshop is at Trinity House from 3-5 pm and you can pick the best seats for the show and then take a break and come back for the show.

2 Hour Guitar workshop is $40 and you then get $10 off of the concert ticket price.
