Midwest Banjo Camp Is Now Open
Dates: June 7-10, 2018
Our Fourteenth Year!
Just Posted, Our 2018 Schedule!!
Midwest Banjo Camp XIV will take place on June 7-10, 2018 at the Olivet College Campus in Olivet, Michigan. Come study old-time or bluegrass banjo with some of today's best players and teachers in both styles. Our program features hands-on classes, demonstrations, two faculty concerts, and still leaves lots of time for jamming with your fellow banjo enthusiasts.
Midwest Banjo Camp offers instruction at four levels in both old-time and bluegrass banjo. We also offer full time programs in bass, fiddle, fingerstyle guitar, flatpicking guitar, and mandolin. But wait, there's more . . .
NEW THIS YEAR: MBC expands its exploration of banjo playing styles by introducing two new full-time programs:
- 19th Century Banjo, featuring Minstrel Banjo, Classic Banjo & Other Early Banjo Styles.
- 4-String Banjo, featuring both Tenor Banjo (tuned CGDA) and Plectrum Banjo (tuned (CGBD)
MBC runs from Thursday evening to Sunday afternoon and offers nine class sessions -- three on Friday, four on Saturday and two on Sunday. There are staff concerts on both Friday and Saturday evenings; over the course of the weekend you'll have the opportunity to hear our entire staff in concert.
