Added Dates in Michigan For Pino Forastiere -


Dear Friends,

 Back in 2005 we hosted an unknown guitarist from Italy named Pino Forastiere.  He had a couple Youtube videos and we were intrigued by his work and when we saw him perform here with MFGS we were stunned by his musicality and his flawless technique.  He will be performing Saturday night October 26th at Trinity House Theatre. Door at 7:30, show at 8pm. Tickets are $20 and $17 for Trinity House members.

 It is hard to describe Pino's performances but one of our members said Forastiere is "Simply Brilliant".  This will be our last concert of this 2013 season. Pino has added a couple other Michigan shows so if you live in the UP or know anyone near there check these out.


Tuesday October 22nd in Escanaba Michigan at Positively the Center of Success, 1300 Ludington, Escanaba Michigan. Tickets are $12  for information call the center at (906) 789-7446


Wednesday, October 23rd in Marquette Michigan @ The Federation of Women's Club @ 104 W. Ridge Rd. Marquette. Door at 7p , show at 7:30 - Tickets available at the door are $12


Part of MFGS's mission is to support the artist who perform the music we love.  Pino is one of the elite guitarists for this genre in the world.  The renowned John Stropes of the Peck School of the Arts in Wisconsin (and the one who transcribed Hedges works and co-authored 'Rhythm, Sonority, Silence' along with Hedges) says of Forastiere " he  is one of the finest fingerstylists to emerge in the last decade"  (he's talking about on the whole planet!)


This will be an amazing night of music!

Here is one of Pino's first pieces that got us hooked way back in 2005!
