Pino Forastiere & Tony McManus

Dear Friends of MFGS 

We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of a couple of  internationally renowned guitarists here in Michigan! 

One who trained classically at a conservatory for classical music and then transformed himself to steel stringed instruments after hearing the iconic American guitarist composer Michael Hedges.  Hmmmmm.....who would that be?

Who else but Pino Forastiere!  He will be performing in Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin this month and you can see him at our old haunts in Ferndale Michigan on 
Saturday October 29th
First United Methodist Church 
22331 Woodward Ave. Ferndale Michigan
Doors at 7:30 / Show at 8pm. 
Tickets are $20
and can be bought online at  but remember the First United Church seats 400 so tickets will be available at the door 

"This Music is from a genius who will make you excited about music all over again!"  -  Minor 7th

"Each composition is a unique journey of impeccable technique and melodic invention. Pino Forastiere is a scientist, but a scientist with a soul"  -
