International Bluegrass Music Museum announces:
Mike Compton has been reappointed as director of his 4th annual Monroe-Style Mandolin Camp to be held from 11th to 13th September 2009, in Owensboro, Kentucky.
In hosting this camp the International Bluegrass Music Museum aims is to preserve the unique, historic performance art of Bill Monroe, The Father of Bluegrass, by teaching his style of mandolin playing and songwriting to a new generation of players. There is non better qualified than Mike Compton who demonstrated that fact on his recent Australian tour. Indeed there are many who say Compton knows more about Monroe’s mandolin style than Mr Monroe himself.
At the Monroe-Style Mandolin Camp, students will spend three days with 6 of the finest mandolin players and 50 of the coolest mandolin students you’ll find on Planet Earth. With registration for each camp capped at 50, the camps’ intimate environment allows for ample opportunities to receive personal, hands-on instruction from each of these legends of Monroe-Style mandolin.
