I have attended Monroe Mandolin Camp each year it has been offered. I have made life-long friends and acquaintances that love and respect the traditional, Monroe-inspired Bluegrass music that I have loved and respected, especially the mandolin playing of Bill Monroe. not only do attendees have a great time at camp, but attendees are able to push themselves to gain a better understanding of the timing, taste, excitement and subtle nuances that separate the mandolin of Bill Monroe from others. Anyone that is a fan of the rawness and vulnerability of the original Bluegrass music developed by Monroe and the music that influenced him will definitely enjoy Monroe Mandolin Camp.” —J.
