The 2015 5th annual Jim Richter “Mandolin Camp for the Rest of Us”–with its special emphasis on rock and blues styles—will be Wednesday July 29th through Saturday August 1st at the Grant Street Inn in Bloomington, Indiana.
New to 2015 is special guest instructor Will Patton. Will is definitely in my top 5 to 10 favorite mandolinists and am very excited to have him join us this year. Will’s knowledge and skill in jazz, gypsy jazz, choro, folk, etc. is incomparable. His technique and tone are full, rich, and vibrant, allowing each note from his Gibson A to fully sing. Much like the great Don Julin before him, Will understands and endorses the motivational and musical designs of this camp, facilitating the aim of a weekend musical encounter.
Camp seating is very limited as many prior students/attendees have reserved spots due to this being the last year before indefinite hiatus. The remaining 7 to 10 spots (out of 25) will open shortly.
