2nd Annual Bill Monroe Camp - September 9-13, 2015, near Nashville, Tenn.

Nashville, Tenn. — The 2nd Annual Monroe Mandolin Camp will be held September 9-13 just outside of Nashville. This hands-on musical camp focuses on the mandolin artistry of Grand Ole Opry star and creative musical legend Bill Monroe.

As the only musical camp that focuses solely on this prolific composer and musician, the camp provides attendees with world-class instruction, an international community of fellow mandolin and Monroe enthusiasts, and an experience that will deepen their musical endeavors and journey.

The camp takes place on a private retreat just West of Nashville on 300 serene acres; an idyllic location for attendees to concentrate on being completely immersed in the magic of Monroe music.

The all-star, internationally known staff includes Mike Compton as Director, David Davis, Skip Gorman, David Long, Casey Campbell, and Mark Royal; luthiers Paul Duff and Will Kimble; special presenters Tony Williamson; and Original Blue Grass Boys Tom Ewing, Mark Hembree, Blake Williams, and Glen Duncan.

There will also be a Monroe Mandolin Camp Youth Scholarship Benefit Concert at Carter Vintage Guitars on September 12. The concert features all camp instructors and luthiers, the Blue Grass Boys, and six incredibly talented youth, ages 10-16, who are the 2015 Youth Scholarship recipients. This event will have limited seating in-store and will be televised on Concert Window for viewers around the world.

Hot catered meals, miles of walking trails, a fishing pond, 12-15 daily classes to choose from, daily instructor-led slow jams, late night snacks and drinks to go with the all-night jams, fire pits, gourmet coffee each day, and a Sunday Morning Gospel Revival at the lake all make the Monroe Mandolin Camp a destination and an experience to remember.
