Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version
2nd Annual Monroe Mandolin CampTuesday, the Monroe Mandolin Camp started accepting a limited number of video submissions for their 2nd Annual Video Scholarship Competition. They are looking for fun, creative videos of you playing a Bill Monroe tune, and telling them why this music is important to you.

The winning candidate will be awarded a full scholarship (including tuition, lodging, and meals) to attend the September 14-18, 2016 Mon Man Camp, being held at the Scarritt-Bennett Center retreat, in downtown Nashville, TN. This scholarship is being generously underwritten by INTELOMETRY, an energy technology company.

Using Bill Monroe's original mandolin style as the guide for camp, and their belief that there are like-minded souls who desire the sound of hard-edged and emotionally charged traditional bluegrass, they created the Monroe Mandolin Camp. Led by a WORLD CLASS staff of internationally known instructors and luthiers, the stage is set for a vibrant and committed community of players of all ages and backgrounds to come for this signature sound. With participants from the US, Canada, Australia, Dominican Republic, France, Sweden, Italy, Ireland, the United Kingdom and other countries, this truly is an international camp of Monroe enthusiasts!

Monroe Mandolin Camp believes that Monroe's original music is one of the most vibrant and valid mandolin languages in the world. In the words of Mr. Bill, "it's powerful." With famous service to handle everything for you, so that you only have to decide what classes to take and whether or not you'll get a lot of sleep that night, this camp is custom tailored for you! You will go home with a year's worth of material to work on, and memories and friends to last a lifetime.

Here's the winning video submitted by Jack Baker of Surrey, London, England. Jack is the recipient of the 1st Annual Video Scholarship Award, 2015.
