Newsletter - April, 2017

Welcome to the SF Bay Area Acoustic Guitar Society (SFBA AGS) newsletter. See below for recent news, upcoming events, and random speculation. Please contact me (Rich Morin) with news items, comments, or suggestions.

New News

Here's a summary of (relatively) current group-related news. Additions and corrections are welcome!

Administrivia

Our membership keeps growing; we're now up to 400+ acoustic guitar fans. If you have friends who might like to know about local guitar events, please let them know about the meetup. Having more members means we'll all hear about more events; we'll also be able to sponsor more events and/or support more performers.

If you don't see a listing for a promising event, please let me know. If you regularly have events to promote, volunteer to be an Event Organizer. This will let you add guitar related events to the calendar!

Old News

Here's a list of (dated, but still relevant) topics from previous newsletters:
