Dear Friends of MFGS

Don't forget that on Saturday, November 20th, MFGS will be hosting Tony McManus in concert and guitar workshop.  McManus's guitar work is both technically brilliant and elegantly lyrical. Legendary guitarist John Renbourn calls McManus the best Celtic guitarist in the world”, Paul Reed Smith of PRS Guitars says “McManus is the Jeff Beck of Acoustic Guitar” , Michigan Fingerstyle Guitar Society says “don’t miss our last concert of 2010” !  

McManus will also host a guitar workshop from 3pm – 5pm on the same day as the show.  Workshop costs are $40 and workshop attendees will receive a concert ticket for $10.   This guitar workshop is for players of all levels.
