Billy McLaughlin Concert - Cancelled

                                                  Dear Friends of MFGS

We are sorry to announce that due to a family emergency the Billy McLaughlin/Jeff Arundel Concert for this Saturday November 21st at 'The Barn' has been cancelled.
Like with Stefano Barone's cancelled concert earlier this fall, both artists would love to reschedule with their Michigan audience.  We are wishing the best for them and their families. 

All of the refunds for tickets purchased online are being refunded and if there is an issue please email us ASAP at 

Wanted to toss out a huge thanks to Al Petteway, Amy White and their accompanist Sally Sparks for a really entertaining concert. What great musicians and genuinely nice folks they are.   They performed at Trinity House Theatre and at Acoustic Routes Concert Series in Saline.  Acoutic Routes is putting on some great shows so catch their schedule on Facebook by typing in Acoustic Routes Concerts.  

Remember that Trinity House Theatre is putting on great concerts all the time and stay in touch with them at

GREAT NEWS ! - this is a message copied from guitarist Brian Gore's (of International Guitar Night) facebook page!
"Pino Forastiere  is now teaching guitar online! But what he's really teaching is how to be a creative musician using guitar - which is a much bigger deal than just teaching, and something very hard to find. He is a scholar of Michael Hedges, and has dissected all aspects of tapping style - so he can really explain how to produce the best attack and tone with those techniques. He also views steel string guitar playing from a compositional perspective, which is very helpful. I should also add he is a brilliant composer himself... Also, nobody loves music more than Pino. I would recommend him highly!!"

We hope to have Pino back next year.  Lessons from an amazing musician and guitarist at the touch of your fingertip! Contact Pino through his facebook page or  

We are always looking at new artists and new ways to get the word out to folks about our concerts.  Our mission is to support the artists so advertisements in newspapers is way too expensive.
