Community Weblog - [ October 1st Woody Mann in Ferndale ]

October 1st Woody Mann in Ferndale


Dear Friends of MFGS

Our fall concerts will be back at The First United Methodist Church in Ferndale Michigan.  For our first concert we will be featuring the American Guitar Legend Woody Mann on October 1st at 7:30 pm.  Guitarists will know him but for those who may not be familiar with him here is a quote you might like to read.  

“Not only was he taught by the peerless guitar picker the Rev Gary Davis, but Mann has played with Son House, Bukka White and John Fahey and has studied jazz under the great Lennie Tristano. In between giving lessons to Paul Simon and accompanying Dori Previn, he has also managed to cut some dazzling music, both by himself and in collaboration with other performers.  Don’t miss a chance to see him; you are unlikely to hear anything- or anyone- better in the fields that Mann has chosen to master.”   THE LONDON TIMES
