The Monroe Music Camp is proud to offer original bluegrass music instruction on mandolin, fiddle, banjo, guitar, upright bass, and harmony singing — the quintessential instrumentation of a bluegrass band!
The mission of the MonManCamp is simply to further the legacy left by Bill Monroe, the Father of Bluegrass Music.
One of the camp’s instructors, Mike Compton, was interviewed on “Saturday Night Stomp” recently on Southern Virginia’s Country Station. Compton invited our listeners to register for the sixth annual Monroe Mandolin Camp, set for Sept. 18-22 at the DuBose Conference Center, 635 College Street, in Monteagle, Tenn.
Participants will have over 100 classes from which to choose, including one-on-one tutorials with an instructor of their choice, jams to join each evening, special presentations daily that enhance the formal instruction each day, special evening concerts, and opening night party jam.
Scholarships are available. The camp will be offering six full-tuition scholarships to any school age attendee (age 5 through college). Those interested, please send an email to email@example.com for more information.
If you are interested in gifting this musical immersion experience for a special someone in your life, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Birthdays, anniversaries, celebrations of a new instrument, and for whatever and every reason!
“We look forward to welcoming you for the ﬁrst time—or welcoming you back—to the Monroe Mandolin & Music Camp experience!” said Compton.
Acting as preservationists for the innovative, original and groundbreaking music as created by Bill Monroe and his Blue Grass Boys (who were every bit active co-collaborators in the creation of this music), the Monroe Mandolin Camp offers a niche stylized focus on this original Americana genre called bluegrass music. We continue to foster an incredible international community of folks who bring this original bluegrass music home with them, building platforms and connections for the next generation of young musicians.
