March 19th - Maneli Jamal

Dear Friends of MFGS 

True to our mission of supporting the art of Fingerstyle Guitar MFGS is proud to present Maneli Jamal on Saturday March 19th for his first Detroit area appearance!   

Maneli's music is very thematic and distinctive as it has been woven together with his remarkable technical ability and the story of his incredibly difficult nomadic life. Born in Iran, Maneli fled with his family and traveled through 5 different countries before settling in the Toronto area.
