About The Global Mandolin Retreat
Players of all levels and styles will be attending this summer's Global Mandolin Retreat in sunny California. Mandolin players will be able to immerse themselves in learning mandolin at this three day mandolin retreat with two of the world’s leading mandolinists; Mike Marshall and Caterina Lichtenberg! They will also be joined by vocal coach Alison Burns and creativity coach James Taylor.
From bluegrass to jazz to classical and more, Mike and Caterina will give you insight into the techniques, styles, and tips to inspire and improve your playing. The retreat is designed to gather mandolinists of all levels from around the globe with a common goal — learning, playing, eating and sleeping music. During the day you'll learn directly with Mike and Caterina and every evening you can sit back with a California wine or local handcrafted beer and take part in intimate, once-in-a-lifetime jam sessions. Just bring your mandolin, get ready to learn, jam, make friends and have fun!
