"Come Hither To Go Yonder"
Mentoring the next generation of bluegrass musicians is an integral part of our mission for camp. Through generous donations, Monroe Mandolin Camp is proud to offer four youth scholarships this year:
"Late in the evening, about sundown, high on the hill, an' above the town." ('Uncle Pen')
On Saturday, September 6th, the faculty (and special 'back-up-band') of the Monroe Mandolin Camp will perform a public show at Nashville's Carter Vintage Guitars as a fundraiser for the camp's Youth Scholarship Fund. All proceeds from this show will go directly towards the 2015 camp Youth Scholarship fund. The concert starts at 7:30pm and tickets are $20.00 per person. More information to follow on advance purchase and support of this fundraising event.
If you are unable to attend but would still like to support this worthy scholarship, you can make a donation directly by clicking here (PayPal).
