Monroe Mandolin CampThe 2015 Monroe Mandolin Camp brings together world class instructors of Bill Monroe's style and music during a 3.5 day music conference camp. Regarded as the preeminent Monroe instructional camp in the world, this three and a half day, music packed event will provide you with all of the tools, technologies, and best practices you need to further your Monroe musical goals.

REGISTRATION opens January 1, 2015 when our newly designed website will launch! Please visit: for ALL details and information, and to register!

We are excited to announce that during the 2015 MonManCamp, we will be presenting 3 very special afternoon seminars, that we know you won't want to miss.

Our first special seminar will be given by world-class luthiers Paul Duff and Will Kimble on THE ART OF MANDOLIN CONSTRUCTION. Participants will receive an intimate up-close and personal 'hands-on' experience of the different elements that go into making a mandolin.

Our second seminar is with Tony Williamson from Mandolin Central presenting THE HISTORY OF THE AMERICAN MANDOLIN up through the Gibson/Loar era, with demonstration on those incredible instruments.

Our final special afternoon seminar is with a group of ORIGINAL BLUE GRASS BOYS including Tom Ewing (guitar), Mark Hembree (bass), Glen Duncan (fiddle), Blake Williams (banjo) where they will play and talk about their experience making music with Bill Monroe. As a special treat, these Blue Grass Boys will also be our "ALL STAR BAND" during the Benefit Instructor Concert held at Carter Vintage Guitars on Sept 12, 2015.

We're thrilled to be offering these break-out seminars, allowing for a deeper connection with the instruments, music and players that all enriched Monroe's music, and the bluegrass genre specifically!

Located in Kingston Springs at Bethany Hills Camp and Conference Center, just outside of Nashville, Tennessee, the 2015 Camp boasts a serene private campus on which to learn in an environment of community and like-minded Monroephiles. Our newly designed website will be launched January 1, 2015, with location information, instructor bios, informational links, and an online registration page. Visit January 1st, 2015 for ALL MONMANCAMP15 information!
