Now that I have retired from teaching at South Plains College and finally gotten fully moved in with my wife in the beautiful hill country of Texas, I have a bit more time to spend being in contact with the banjo community.
I have only retired from the college; I have not retired from trying to make beautiful music on the banjo or from making a living. To that end I am playing with my own group, Alan Munde Gazette - we had a wonderful and busy summer schedule - teaching a few students here locally (Wimberley is about 45 miles south and a bit to the west of Austin), recording and other musical enterprises.
I look forward to paticipating when I feel I have something to offer.
