9th Annual Monroe Mandolin Camp
September 27 - October 2$550
Welcome to the 9th Annual Monroe Mandolin Camp, where original, traditional roots bluegrass music is played, taught, jammed, and breathed 24-7! Whether mandolin, fiddle, banjo, rhythm guitar, harmony singing, upright bass, or songwriting, MMC offers the finest instruction in a fun and inclusive environment. Young learn from the young at heart; southerners jam side-by-side with northerners; long-timers play side by side with beginners… All come together as a dynamic community to learn the music Bill Monroe created. We pride ourselves on being something of an incubator to the next generation of traditional bluegrass players, who will carry the #monroestyle, #flattstyle, #scruggsstyle, and #bakerstyle into the future.
A note from our Music Director, Mike Compton: “We are proud to have this line up of instructors and special presenters for 2022….some real heavy hitters coming up! This year’s focus will be on the classic bluegrass band that started it all, Monroe/Flatt/Scruggs/Wise & Rainwater…but we will certainly not be limited to that. It is a strong place for us to start from and center our effort to bring you the best experience we can provide! We look forward to welcoming you to camp this year!”
