Upcoming concert

  #
Hi folks.. Looking forward to seeing the members of the Michigan Fingerstyle Guitar Society coming out in force to the upcoming show in Sterling Heights this coming saturday night.  This show is for a great  cause and is a terrific  opportunity for our Society members to show support for each other, which in the performing world is HUGE.  We really need to keep spreading the word of this great genre of music that we're all involved in and the best way to do that is to support as many of our member's gigs as possible and bring friends and family to show them just how marvelous this music is.  Its not just the board members that can do this... its each and every member. So please grab the family and friends and come out to the show.  Its an early night and I know I can speak for the performers in that we'd be honored and very very pleased to see you all.

NICK SCHILLACE (www.nickschillace.com) is a Detroit area composer, teacher, and musicologist exploring what it means to be an American musician. In 2002 he completed a graduate thesis on the late guitarist John Fahey, and utilizes Fahey's self-described style of syncopated "American Primitive" fingerstyle guitar as the foundation for his own technique. This style, based on early forms of blues, folk, and old-time music, provides the perfect foundation for larger and more expansive musical compositions incorporating a wide range of his own idiosyncratic influences. He has been touring extensively both locally and nationally since releasing his debut acoustic instrumental album "Box Canyon" in June 2005. He also writes and performs with the groups indoorpark and Big Lake Trawler.

"Box Canyon is a collection of nine pensive and frequently beautifully played songs for acoustic guitar"
    - Steve Byrne,  Detroit Free Press

“Nick paints melodies as a painter . . . his techniques are solid and the music is engaging. He has his own signature.”
        -Henk te Veldhuis . . . Bridge Guitar Reviews

“ . . . inspired melodic evolutions. recommended.”
        -Gerald Van Waes . . . Psychedelic Folk

“Nick Schillace's solo acoustic guitar music is propelled by a command
 of the traditional and fueled by an expression of a truly original voice."
        -Jon Moshier, music coordinator/on-air host WDET-FM Detroit Public Radio

Farewell Show

Fingerstyle Guitarist and member Merv Collins will be performing his Farewell Show this coming Wednesday Night September 7th at the Coffee Beanery in Ferndale

I've really enjoyed my run at the Coffee Beanery keeping the stage warm while JB and Mark were off enjoying their summer.  I'm moving to the Chicago area next week and will miss being part of the MFGS, although I will be back often to attend the great concerts that are scheduled

I hope all of you will be able to stop in for my last show, and thanks again for making my membership in the Michigan Fingerstyle Guitar Society so enriching and enjoyable.

Thanks,

Merv
