    3rd Annual Marshall Mando Summit Announced

    Marshall, Mich. — Mike Marshall, Caterina Lichtenberg, Sierra Hull, John Reischman and Don Stiernberg headline The 3rd Annual Marshall Mandolin Summit, a four-day mandolin experience held August 8-11, 2019.

    The weekend will feature personalized instruction as well as once in a lifetime performances from the artists.

    Evening performances and workshops provide a one-of-a-kind experience featuring music, fine foods, community, and musical education led by some of the very best mandolin players in the world in one of the most beautiful and historic settings in the Midwest.

    The concert will take place in historic Franke Center for the Arts in Marshall, built in 1921. This theater only holds 200 people so it will be a rare up-close and intimate concert!


    Registration opens February 1. Cost for the Marshall Mandolin Summit is $1,299. Activities start midday Thursday, August 8 and end midday on Sunday, August 11. Many last year decided to stay over Sunday night to squeeze a little more out of the weekend. After you register we will contact you within 2-3 days to go over details and collect payment.

    Registration includes access to all classes, seminars, meals, and performances, not to mention world class coffee, tea, wine, and other perks! Anyone fully registered can also add an extra person for meals and performances at additional cost.

    Registration to the Marshall Mandolin Summit includes full access to all performances.

    The Marshall Mando Summit receives additional sponsorship and support from the Mandolin Cafe and City of Marshall, Michigan.

    About the Summit

    The Marshall Mandolin Summit is the brainchild of Mike Marshall and Adrian Bagale. After some years of collaborating on mandolin design, having lots of opportunity to hang out and contemplate things over a kitchen counter and a BBQ, the two looked hard over their ethos (food, music, conversation, family, education, travel and adventure to name a few) and decided a gathering was in order!

      Wow, what a line up. I imagine Sierra will be doing a one day thing similar to what Sarah Jarosz did. Add John Reischman to the standard cast of characters. This is a good candidate for where my festival funds will go to.
