Midwest Banjo Camp XIII will take place on June 1-4, 2017 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.

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.

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. Rounding out the program are demonstrations, presentations, and staff-led bluegrass and old-time jams conducted at a variety of skill levels.

NEW THIS YEAR: full time program in Minstrel Banjo.

We also offer a Weekend-Only Option (Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon).
