Fort Worth, Tx. — Skip Gorman, one of the leading teachers and players of Monroe-style mandolin in the country will be teaching a mandolin workshop on November 11, 2007 at Arts Fifth Avenue starting at 5:00 p.m.

Skip has followed Monroe's traditional fiddle-style of mandolin playing for 38 years. As an old-time fiddle player, himself, Skip has captured the essence and beauty of Monroe's playing on the mandolin, having sat with the master on several occasions.

He has taught bluegrass mandolin with Ronnie McCoury, Frank Wakefield, Mike Compton, Norman Blake, Chris Thile, Butch Baldissari, Mike Seeger, and Barry Mitterhoff.

"Skip Gorman remains best known in bluegrass circles as perhaps the finest exponent today of the style of mandolin Bill Monroe played with the Monroe Brothers."
Art Menius - Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine
