Dear Friends of MFGS

Fareed Haque and Goran Ivanovic were in Michigan last year and they pretty much sold out both Trinity House and 20 Front Street.  
They are back for another round of music on

20 Front Street, Lake Orion, MI 48362 • 248-783-7105
Tickets are $20 and available online through 20 Front Street 

As a younger man Fareed Haque was thought of well enough to tour with Sting and over the years has performed in Jazz, Rock and Classical genres.  Most recently reuniting with Goran Ivanovic and touring throughout the States.  Goran Ivanovic is a Croatian born Chicagoan who performs with a nylon stringed classical guitar and creates not only gorgeous Balkan rhythms but also intricate Middle Eastern and Asian inspired cadences. 

Combined together Fareed Haque and Goran Ivanovic are not a duo to be missed. 
Here is one of their pieces from last time at 20 Front Street, one of the best small venues in the Midwest 


This will be a great evening of music that you won't want to miss!!!

The Naples, Italy-born musician’s precise fingerstyle technique has earned him critical acclaim and fame on YouTube, where his compositions have received millions of views. Barone is also a frequent collaborator with Detroit Free Press senior video producer and director Brian Kaufman, who has made Barone’s music an integral part of his editing process in films like “Predator/Prey: The Fight for Isle Royale’s Wolves” and “The Wall,” which gets its world premiere at Freep Film Festival this year.

Following the music performance, Barone and Kaufman will discuss how music can evoke a film’s mood, drive its pacing and reinforce emotional notes.

Barone also will perform brief sets before the 7:30 p.m. Sat., April 14, screening of “The Wall” at the DIA’s Detroit Film Theatre and the 6 p.m. Sun., April 15, screening of “12th and Clairmount” at the Detroit Film Theatre.






Update on 20 Front Street Concert- A Great Venue to see Stefano Barone

  #

Dear Friends of MFGS

Spring is upon us.  Come on out to one of the nicest venues in the Midwest; 

20 Front Street!

They have a cafe with nice snacks and Kambucha along with Ray's ice cream 

and of course on this Friday April 13th they have 

from Rome Italy - Stefano Barone 

at 20 Front Street this Friday, April 13th 

wsg Stuart and OldSkool Sunny.

Address is the same as the venue 

20 Front Street in Lake Orion -  248-783-7105

Tickets are $18 and available online http://20frontstreet.com/event/stefano-barone/

  or at the door. 

There has been a time change in his appearance;

Show starts at 8pm - Doors are at 7:30

As more film directors hear his music you will see his name in the credits of future movies! 

Wouldn't it be nice to say you saw him when he was at 20 Front Street in 2018!!

Barone has just completed a good portion of his tour performing in the Upper Peninsula, Petoskey, Livonia and Lansing along with a masterclass at the Interlochen Center for the Arts. Currently he is in Milwaukee hosting a masterclass for the students of 'Peck School of the Arts'

Barone's performances interweave his own compositions such as 'The Cure' and 'Us' in-between re-arrangments of Bjork's 'Human Behavior' and Philip Glass's 'Facades'  The response to his performances has been overwhelming with offers to use his music in films and appearances at festivals. 

Having performed for years as a world class acoustic guitarist Stefano has embarked upon a very exploratory  approach to his compositions.  The music that he wants to create takes more than a guitar.   With the use of a multitrack machine and a 10 and 6 stringed guitar and an adaption to change one guitar into a modified cello.

Here is a brief  a powerfully haunting piece called  'The Cure'

https://www.facebook.com/stefbarone/videos/10213528015266416/


20 Front Street!


We hope to see you there!

Stefano Barone - Friday April 6th - Tickets available at the door.

  #

Dear Friends of MFGS


The weather is slowly coming around to Spring so here is an opportunity to come out to hear some remarkably new  music originating from Neapolitan roots and an infallible sense of rhythm and the ability to improvise. 


  True to our non profit mission of supporting the art of Fingerstyle Guitar MFGS is proud to present Stefano Barone on Friday April 6th at Trinity House Theatre.

 Barone has had over 5 million views on YouTube from his groundbreaking 2008 CD 'Particolare#Uno'.  Having embraced the American Minimalist sound along the lines of Philip Glass and Steve Reich Stefano's compositions have evolved following the pursuit of the artistic sound he is inspired to create.  His music is thematic and quite distinctive as it has been woven together with his remarkable technical ability along with his 6 and 10 string guitars and occasionally layers the sound with a cello bow on one or both of the instruments. 


Stefano collaborated with Pino Forastiere and Sergio Altamura to form the Italian supergroup trio of Guitar Republic. In 2010 Free Press Videographer Brian Kaufman saw Guitar Republic perform for MFGS in Ferndale and something about the unique sound they created caught his ear.  Since then Kaufman has used their music as a trio and individually as solo artists for many of his films.

This year the Detroit Free Press Film Festival has invited Stefano to perform a short set before 2 of the films Kaufman has directed using the music from Stefano and the other artists of Guitar Republic http://freepfilmfestival.com/special-events/. 


In addition to his performances at various venues Stefano Barone will be teaching a masterclass for guitar students at Interlochen Center For the Arts in Michigan & Peck School for the Arts in Milwaukee Wisconsin.

This Friday is an opportunity to see Barone perform a full set of his amazing music.


Trinity House Theatre is located at 38840 West Six Mile


 in Livonia. Exit west on 6 mile road off of I-275.
 


www.trinityhousetheatre.org


Show at 8pm - Doors are at 7:30


Tickets are $20 and are available online @

www.fingerstyle.org  or at the door the night of the show.

Grab a friend and come on out to experience a musical journey and support artists like Stefano as they continue create such inspirational music.

"Stefano's music is akin to great storytelling, eliciting a broad range of emotions and an even broader range of sounds from an instrument that often sounds nothing like a guitar. As a documentary filmmaker, I was immediately drawn to its power."           Emmy Award Winning Director – Brian Kaufman

Friday April 6th - Stefano Barone - Update on Ian Ethan Case

  #

Dear Friends of MFGS

Friday April 6th Stefano Barone will be appearing at Trinity House Theatre in Livonia.  This will be the first Detroit area performance for him on this Midwest tour.  Barone was invited to perform in the US by the Detroit Free Press Film Festival.   

"Music plays an important role in making of a documentary film. A song can set the pacing of the edit, reinforce an emotional note and evoke a mood in a single scene or throughout the film. Detroit Free Press senior video producer and director Brian Kaufman use of music is an integral part of his editing process as evident in his films “12th and Clairmount,” “Predator/Prey: The Fight for Isle Royale’s Wolves,” and his latest film “The Wall” that is world premiering at Freep Film Festival this year. And the man behind much of that music is internationally known contemporary acoustic guitarist and composer Stefano Barone".                                             Detroit Free Press

Trinity House Theater - Friday April 6th

38840 Six Mile Rd, Livonia

                             734-464-6302

 Doors at 7:30 / Show at 8pm

Tickets are $20 online at www.fingerstyle.org or at the door.

Initially Stefano was playing piano and guitar at a young age in Naples.  In 2003 Stefano first heard the album  "Arial Boundries" by the amazing guitarist Michael Hedges.  Barone changed his approach to music after hearing that and moved to Rome to study composition and technique with Pino Forastiere. He embraced contemporary music, especially American Minimalism along the lines of Steve Reich and Philip Glass. 

Stefano Barone was introduced to us by his initial groundbreaking CD 'Particolare#uno' in 2008 and his piece 'Batman/Alexander Supertramp' had over 3.5 million views on YouTube.  His first appearance in the Detroit area was in 2010 with the Italian contemporary trio 'Guitar Republic' consisting of Barone, Pino Forastiere and Sergio Altamura. 

Barone has now evolved his music into a powerful dynamic blend of 6 and 10 string guitars along with a multitrack machine and even incorporating a cello bow by adjusting the fretboard of his D-28 Martin guitar.  Here is a short take of Stefano performing a Philip Glass piece 'Facades'.   https://www.facebook.com/stefbarone/videos/10213425132014399/

"Stefano's music is akin to great storytelling, eliciting a broad range of emotions and an even broader range of sounds from an instrument that often sounds nothing like a guitar. As a documentary filmmaker, I was immediately drawn to its power."           Emmy Award Winning Director – Brian Kaufman

From Rome, Italy - Stefano Barone - Multiple Dates

  #

Dear Friends of MFGS


We have another amazing set of concerts coming up!  Starting,

from Rome Italy,

  contemporary guitarist/composer

Stefano Barone

 Stefano Barone has been to the States several times in the past as a solo artist and also part of the avant-garde Italian trio Guitar Republic. 

This year Stefano was invited to the US to perform during the Detroit Free Press Film Festival April 11th - 15th.  Free Press Executive Video Producer and Director Brian Kaufman has used Stefano's compositions for several of his most recent films including this years world premiere of 'The Wall'.  Barone will perform a short set prior to 2 films and then an afternoon engagement and discussion on music and film with Brian Kaufman & Stefano. 

Born in Naples, Barone studied piano in his youth and then turned to the acoustic guitar. In 2003 after hearing the late Michael Hedges striking album 'Arial Boundaries', Barone changed his approach to music and moved to Rome to study with the renowned Pino Forastiere.  Barone embraced contemporary music, in particular American Minimalism following along the lines of Philip Glass, Steve Reich and Dominic Frasca.  

His pieces are created with a 6 and 10 stringed guitar, a multi-track machine  along with using a cello bow to orchestrate  his compositions and arrangements. His music has a cinematic quality to it because it creates perfect balance bordering between acoustic and electronic sound.

Barone will be appearing at a series of appearances and performances in Michigan while he is here.

Friday April 6th - Trinity House Theatre - Tickets are $20 and available at www.fingerstyle.org

Friday April 13th - 20 Front Street in Lake Orion - Tickets $18 and available at 20 Front Street, www.20frontstreet.com

Don Ross is one of those few guitarists who was a contemporary of Michael Hedges and an inspiration to many of your favorite acoustic guitarist performing today.

 In 1988, Don Ross became the first Canadian to win the U.S. National Fingerstyle Guitar Championship and he won it again in 1996. Don is still the only two-time winner of the competition. Don was our first performer for MFGS way back in 2002 and in fact, our logo was drawn off of a photo of Don playing the guitar.


 Don is one of the greats of this genre and he has a good following here and across the border so if you haven't seen him perform here is your chance....if you seen him before we know you'll be back.


Here is Don performing his tribute to Michael Hedges -  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YkidVP0AcQ8

Here are a couple of interesting things from Anil Prasad.  Some of you may ask; who is Anil Prasad?  Anil Prasad is a music journalist who has been one of the best writers of the last several decades http://www.innerviews.org/.   Prasad interviewed and wrote a lot about Michael Hedges, as far back as 1990.  Here is a post that Anil wrote about the recent 20th anniversary of the death of Michael Hedges https://www.facebook.com/innerviews/posts/10156000868953594

Here is what Anil has to say about Pino Forastiere  in another recent Facebook post.  

 "It is not hyperbole to call Pino Forastiere http://www.pinoforastiere.com/ one of the most important guitarists on the planet. The endlessly inventive Italian acoustic musician has just released a superb new solo album titled 'Village Life.' He's performing his unique compositions on what he calls his "laboratory guitar" -- a converted Eko Chetro steel-string that now has 16-strings. The recording's nine tracks explore textures, timbres and polyrhythms that are specific to their genesis on the custom instr...ument. Pino's pieces are evocative and full of immense beauty. One of my favorite musicians and also a great human being I have had the pleasure of spending a great deal of time with on both sides of the pond over the years. The album is available at digital outlets worldwide. You can learn more about Pino and watch him perform a piece from the album here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vhFwySwh-rM    

http://www.pinoforastiere.com/village-life-new-release/ You can also read a conversation I conducted with this wonderful artist here:

This will probably be Billy's 5th or 6th performance for MFGS.  We've hosted him before his near career stopping near paralysis and his remarkable decision to switch from a right handed guitar player to a left handed player just so he could play the music he wrote.  It's a remarkable story and he is a remarkable performer.   

Although the trio won't be with Billy we thought you'd enjoy this lovely piece.

Billy McLaughlin November 18th - Last Concert of Season

  #

Dear Friends of MFGS


It's time to fall back into those early nights we now have and listen to some live music.  MFGS is honored to present for our final concert of 2017 an amazing and inspiring friend and musician

Billy McLaughlin

Saturday November 18th @ Trinity House Theatre

McLaughlin is recognized internationally for his award-winning music and inspirational message. In 1999, after having been named to Billboards Top Ten Chart, McLaughlin vanished from sight as his career crumbled due to a little-known neuromuscular disorder, focal dystonia, which destroyed the use of his fret-playing hand. After suffering several years without a cure, he embarked on an unlikely attempt to regain his career and succeeded in relearning his instrument, one note at a time, with the opposite hand.

Show at 8pm, doors at 7:30

General Admission tickets are $20 - $17 for Trinity House members.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALZTBIeTZ_Y

Trinity House no longer takes reservations if you'd like to secure a seat pick up tickets early at www.fingerstyle.org

More things to see and listen to...........

Pino Forastiere has a new release called 'Village Life'. Pino's compositions and technique are unmatched and he commissioned a luthier in Rome to 'adjust' his guitar to match his music!

Richard Gilewitz - @ Trinity House Theatre

 Friday October 27th

Nationally acclaimed acoustic guitarist Richard Gilewitz defies easy categorization: one minute he'll be picking sophisticated Bach-like melodies, and the next minute he'll be getting down in a raw Delta blues song. His repertoire covers everything from the afore-mentioned classical and blues to folk, jazz and rock. He even stretches out and delves into near-avant-garde territory, recalling initial inspirations like John Fahey and Leo Kottke.     - Digital City - Nashville
