Trinity House (TH) has announced that the CGT show has sold out for September 21st.

Michigan Luthier Gary Zimnicki has recently been making instruments out of maple wood from floorboards and fir wood from old ceilings reclaimed out of 100 year old homes in Detroit and they are simply stunning!  Stunning enough so that PBS Channel 56 is brodcasting a video about his use of reclaimed wood for instruments on the show 'Detroit Performs'  this Tuesday at 7:30 pm.


Upcoming show @ Trinity House!!!

Although not your typical fingerstyle guitar artists we have always appreciated the support of Candyrat Records so please take a moment to check out


The Reign of Kindo

According to the band's Facebook page, the members describe themselves simply as, "makers of music". Their style is altogether jazzier than most bands in the genre, "mixing complex, jazz harmonies and dissonances" with a Pop music influence. According to the band's recording studio videos, posted on YouTube by rpoland, they incorporate several other instruments in some of their songs, such as the Cello, the Tenor Saxophone, and many forms of auxiliary percussion. Here is an example of their sound


Matthew Santos 

This singer songwriter has been with Candyrat Records now for several years and recently toured in England with Stefano Barone & Gareth Pearson! Matthew has also appeared on the David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel, Craig Ferguson and Ellen DeGeneres shows!  Give this a listen and hope to see you at PJ’s Lager House!  We will update you with more info on time etc as we get closer to this event!

Thank You for supporting the artists who create this beautiful music and the venues that allow them to perform!

We would love to post acoustic guitar concert information so please let us know.
