Fall 2010 & Spring 2011 Concert Announcements


Dear Friends of MFGS

It's about time to announce our fall schedule and remind you of other musical events going on.  If  you were thinking about going to the  Canadian Guitar Festival there’s still time.  It starts on July 30th.   They have an amazing lineup of guitarists.  Check out the information at    

Also here in Michigan there is our own Interlochen Guitar Festival and Workshop starting August 26th.

These are two premier guitar events you won't want to miss!


Now on to our  Fall Concert Series 2010/Spring 2011

Sunday September 12th - with the remarkable California Guitar Trio   This will be a Sunday evening concert @ Callahans 

The California Guitar Trio was founded in 1991 and consists of Paul Richards from Utah, Bert Lams of Belgium and Hideyo Moriya of Japan.  They  first  met in England at one of Robert Fripp’s Guitar Craft Courses in 1987. After their studies they embarked on a worldwide tour with Fripp’s League of Crafty Guitarists. 

A California Guitar Trio performance is like a night at the theater: Drama, passion, humor, joy , pathos, it's all there." -
