Synopsis

Album Description
Alan Munde is one of the finest players ever to pick up the five-string banjo. Drawn from a series of recordings released on the Ridge Runner label in the early '80s and featuring Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, Roland White and others, this compilation contains an incredible display of banjo musicianship. From his early days with Jimmy Martin through his ongoing tenure with Country Gazette, Alan has continually expanded the breadth of his vision. --from the liner notes by Tony Trischka

CD Reviews

Texas Dynamite!
Bradley A. Miller | Mound, MN USA | 02/18/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I believe Alan is the best banjo player around. "Festival Favorites Revisited" is a fascinating look at some of the traditional bluegrass "parking lot" favorites. There are a number of twists and turns both in style and tunings making it a a very intersting ride through the classics. Whether you're a picker or not, you owe it to yourself to add this Munde recording to your collection!"
Blazing Amazing Combo of Scruggs and Melodic Styles
surfandsand | Florida USA | 12/28/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD is banjo dynamite. Alan exhibits his amazing style in which he combines the best of both scruggs 3 finger banjo rolls and melodic pickin style to produce a vibe ya just gotta hear to believe. All songs are performed without lyrics and with a focus on the banjo although the other bluegrass musicians on the CD are superb. I highly recommend this to anybody that plays or just loves 3 finger banjo."
Superb Banjo Picking
Steve Vrana | Aurora, NE | 06/02/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have been a fan of Alan Munde since his days with the progressive bluegrass band Country Gazette--in fact, Munde was the band's only constant during its nearly 20-year history. In the early eighties he released a series of instrumental albums entitled FESTIVAL FAVORITES on the Ridge Runner label. Now anthologized on Rounder, this is a broad look at the talents of one of the bluegrass world's top banjo pickers. Among other musicians, Munde is joined by Country Gazette alumni Joe Carr (guitar) and Roland White (mandolin) on many of these tracks. [Running time - 51:46] VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED"
