OWENSBORO, Ky. (AP) - The International Bluegrass Music Museum is thinking about adding more music camps to it repertoire.
Citing the success of its Bill Monroe-style Mandolin Camp, museum board members say they are considering different camps that focus on all the instruments used to play bluegrass music. Terry Woodward, who is chairman of the museum's board of trustees, told the Messenger-Inquirer (http://bit.ly/MNtTzY) that he could see camps dedicated to Dobro, guitar, fiddle, banjo and guitar.
He says the idea depends on the success of a fund drive to convert an office building into a bluegrass music center where additional classes could be held.
Meanwhile, the next mandolin camp is Sept. 14-16. Camp director Mike Compton has played professionally for more than 30 years and is currently a member of the Nashville Bluegrass Band.
