Pino Forastiere Oct. 29th in Ferndale


Dear friends of MFGS,

Saturday Evening October 29th MFGS will be hosting a brilliant guitarist and composer (and one of our favorites), Pino Forasitere in Ferndale at the First United Methodist Church at 22331 Woodward Ave.

Tickets are $20, cash or check. Doors at 7:30 and show at 8pm.  Refreshments available.

The First United Church  is on Woodward just south of 9 Mile Rd.  You can buy tickets ahead of time at although the church seats several hundred people so tickets will assuredly be available at the door.

Opening for Pino will be one of the up and coming fingerstyle guitarist from Southeast Michigan,  Yeman Al-Rawi!  Yeman has opened for Calum Graham and Michael Chapdelaine and we are happy to have him at this show.  MFGS has known Yeman for 6 or 7 years now it is exciting to see his development as a musician and composer.  Here is one of Yeman's covers of a song written by Andrea Valeri

Pino is currently in touring in Wisconsin and will return to Michigan for concerts this coming
