Benefit Concert This Monday - MFGS Fall Concert Tickets on Sale.

  #

Dear Friends of MFGS

Sometimes we are presented with the ability to help others in need. Kevin Ransom was a music writer for the Detroit News and Ann Arbor News for a total of 25 years and he gave a lot of effort and time supporting local artists; now it is our turn to support Kevin! . Kevin has had a string of bad fortune and is in need of our assistance. There is a benefit concert featuring many regional musicians at the Ark this Monday, August 24th. The article link will give you more info and if you cannot attend the concert then you can help out through a 'Go Fund Me' account set up for Kevin.

Saturday September 26th Michigan Fingerstyle presents

Grammy Winning Guitarist Pat Donohue

 

 

@ Trinity House Theatre

38840 Six Mile Rd, Livonia

Show starts at 8pm, Doors at 7:30

Tickets are $20 and $17 for Trinity House members

Pat is one of the most amazing & versatile guitarist we’ve ever hosted.  He has performed for MFGS several times in the past but it has been some time since we've heard the likes of his licks. He just happens to have been the guitarist for the Prarie Home Companion program hosted by Garrison Keilor for 20 years but now is devoting most of his time to his music and teaching.  

Pat puts on an amazing show and we are fortunate that he would like to host a guitar workshop for the MFGS. The guitar workshop will be held from 3pm to 5pm the day of the show at Trinity House Theatre.  There will be discounted concert tickets for workshop attendees.  The workshop costs $40 for 2 hours and then the concert ticket will only cost you $10. Call 248-646-4030 for reservations
