Monroe Mandolin Mondays with Mike Compton on Concert Window - June 8, June 22, July 6, July 20, August 3, August 17, August 3, 2015
Nashville, Tenn. — Monroe Mandolin Camp Director Mike Compton and special guests are set to present instructional demonstrations via Concert Window geared towards in-depth understanding of the inner workings of specific Bill Monroe compositions
All sessions start at 7:00 p.m. CST. Dates for the demonstrations are June 8, June 22, July 6, July 20, August 3, August 17, August 31.
Mike will perform and dissect audience selected Bill Monroe compositions. On some, but not all sessions, he will be joined by special guests. Time permitting, viewers will have the opportunity to ask and have their questions answered regarding technique, Monroe, tunes, etc.
All proceeds (tickets and tips) from the presentations will go toward the continued funding of the Monroe Mandolin Camp Youth Scholarship Fund. The ultimate goal with these sessions, besides hearing some great music and having fun, is to introduce listeners to this grand-style of traditional, Americana roots based bluegrass music created by Bill Monroe, and to invite all to attend the camp.
The Monroe Mandolin Camp, LLC has been in operation since 2013 and is located in Nashville, Tenn. Led by master mandolinist, Mike Compton, the mission of Monroe Mandolin Camp, LLC TM is simply to further the legacy left by the Father of Bluegrass Music, Bill Monroe.
Goals for camp are to:
- Present a curriculum that helps players understand the culture that created this music, and the techniques needed to apply this knowledge to their own musical endeavors.
- Educate contemporary mandolin enthusiasts about the stylistic elements and backbone of this art form.
- Preserve the music created and recorded by Bill Monroe.
