Plymouth, Minn. — Anthony Hannigan will conduct a 3-day mandolin camp at the Radisson Hotel & Conference Center as part of the Minnesota Bluegrass Winter Weekend, February 29 through March 2.

The main goal of all sessions will be to help everyone become a better player and get comfortable in a jam session. After each session participants are encouraged to attend jams throughout the festival.

There will be 4 time slots throughout the weekend with a different emphasis at each.

Registration fee for the camp is $50.00. Contact Joe Walters, (763) 441-0910 to register. Advance registration is strongly recommended as a sell-out class is expected.

Anthony Hannigan is a former Winfield Mandolin Champion who has recorded and performed with major artists for years including Vassar Clements, Hickory Project, Mac Wiseman, and David Bromberg and has served as an instructor at the renowned RockyGrass Academy and Augusta Heritage Center.
