Congratulations to Dylan Ferris from British Columbia, playing Bill Monroe's classic, "Southern Flavor." Dylan is awarded a full scholarship, including tuition, lodging and meals, to attend the 2016 camp.
Using Bill Monroe’s original mandolin style as the guide for this camp, the Monroe Mandolin Camp, a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Corporation, was founded in 2013 for like-minded souls who desire emotionally charged traditional bluegrass, one of the most vibrant and valid mandolin languages in the world.
The Monroe Mandolin Camp is held September 14-18, 2016 at the Scarritt-Bennett Center in downtown Nashville, minutes away from iconic landmarks such as Carter Vintage Guitars, The World Famous Station Inn, and The Country Music Hall of Fame.
With some of the finest Monroe style instructors in the world, including Director and Co-Founder Mike Compton, David Davis (his uncle Cleo was the original Blue Grass Boy), Dr. Richie Brown, Adam Tanner, Lauren Price, Mark Royal, and Alan O'Bryant (new banjo track 2016), students will get to choose from 77 classes.
Additional offerings include private one-on-one individual tutorials with an instructor of their choice, an All-Camp Assembly Round Table, 3 Special Presentations, organized camp jams, and jams late into the night.
This camp has developed a great reputation as being a fun community of mandolin players — a camaraderie of friendships — uniting folks from around the world of all ages, who attend to be a part of this extraordinary one-of-a kind experience.
