About Monroe Mandolin Camp
Using Bill Monroe's mandolin style as guide and the belief like-minded souls desire the sound of hard-edged, emotionally-charged traditional bluegrass, the Monroe Mandolin Camp was created.
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.
