8th Annual Monroe-Style Mandolin Camp
September 13, 14, & 15, 2013
International Bluegrass Music Museum
At the 8th annual Monroe-Style Mandolin Camp, you will spend three days with the finest mandolin faculty and luthiers and up to 50 of the coolest mandolin students you’ll find on Planet Earth.
With registration for each camp capped at 50, the camps’ intimate environment allows for ample opportunities to receive personal, hands-on instruction from each of these legends of Monroe-Style mandolin.
The 2013 Monroe-Style Mandolin Camp Faculty is comprised of the leading purveyors of Monroe style and many of them learned directly from and played with Bill Monroe. Our luthiers will be providing on site repair and advice as well as leading workshops of their own. Our camp faculty includes:
- Mike Compton, Camp Director
- Richard Brown, Associate Director
- Roland White, Faculty Member
- Jesse Brock, Faculty Member
- Skip Gorman, Faculty Member
- Mark Royal, Adjunct Faculty Member
- Will Kimble, Luthier
- Paul Duff, Luthier
Jam with new friends surrounded by Bill Monroe’s artifacts. Eat great barbeque and discover why Owensboro’s famous for barbeque! Experience rare performances by master musicians, onstage and off. Enjoy a total immersion in bluegrass music’s homeland, history and future at the world’s only bluegrass music museum dedicated to preserving the international history and performance art of bluegrass music… all the while surrounded by rare bluegrass memorabilia. Compare, sell or swap mandolins with other players. Get expert advice from our resident Luthiers and ask for a tune-up for your mandolin while you’re there. Be part of the museum and let it become an integral part of your life and music.
This is the last year that our Mandolin Camp will focus solely on Monroe-Style. We invite you to immerse yourself in the techniques passed down from the father of bluegrass himself.
