2nd Munich Banjo Camp - a resounding success!

The 2nd Munich Banjo Camp (7-9 November 2008) was a great success, with nearly thirty attenders from Germany, Austria, Italy and Switzerland. Instructors Rüdiger Helbig (D) and John Dowling (UK) provided an intense and varied learning programme, adjusted to suit all levels of experience and ability. The weekend culminated in a full participant concert, resulting in what may have been Germany’s largest bluegrass band.

As a result of two years' success and increasing demand, a larger and more convenient venue is planned for the 3rd MBC (fall 2009) - at Lake Chiemsee in a music seminar hotel, with learning, practice, jamming, food, drink, and sleep all under one roof. Tuition in other bluegrass instruments may also be included. For more information, contact:
