How to play the Bill Monroe way

January 25, 2006|From Associated Press

A museum dedicated to preserving bluegrass music is planning a weekend camp this summer to teach people how to play the mandolin like Bill Monroe.

The study of the late Monroe's style is important because he revolutionized the way the instrument is played, said Justin Holt, a spokesman for the International Bluegrass Music Museum in Owensboro, Ky.

The camp, which will take place Sept. 8 to 10, will cost $400.
