Alan Munde and Bill Evans: “Peaches and Cream”
 
Banjo legend joins Peghead Nation banjo instructor in the studio to play an Alan Munde classic.

Peghead Nation banjo instructor Bill Evans recently interviewed bluegrass banjo great Alan Munde for a segment of his Bluegrass Banjo course. While recording that segment, Bill and Alan played a two-banjo version of Alan’s tune “Peaches and Cream,” which Alan recorded in 1976 on his album The Banjo Kid Picks Again. The tune features repeating melodic patterns played over a chord progression built on the circle of fifths, and Alan describes some of this in his full interview with Bill.

Alan gained fame as one of the leaders of contemporary bluegrass banjo as member of Country Gazette and for his albums with Sam Bush and the Kentucky Colonels, as well his own highly influential solo albums. He also taught banjo at South Plains College for 20 years.

In the interview in Bill’s Bluegrass Banjo course, Alan talks about his approach to banjo playing and music, with advice about practicing with a metronome, improvising, creating melodies on the banjo and more. To see the full interview, enroll in Bill’s Bluegrass Banjo course today!
