The Two High String Band from Austin, TX has a new lineup, and a new CD, to announce to the world.
Hot Texas Burrito will hit in July, featuring new band members Alan Munde on banjo and Mark Rubin on bass. Alan has been a fixture on the bluegrass circuit for his 20 plus years with The Country Gazette and his career on the faculty at South Plains College in Levelland, TX, and Mark is familiar from his work with Danny Barnes in Bad Livers, another Austin product.
They join Billy Bright on mandolin, Brian Smith and Geoff Union on guitars, and Erik Hokannen on fiddle.
You can find several audio samples on the band’s MySpace page, including Munde’s arrangement of John Coltrane’s Lazy Bird.
Look for them out on the road this season promoting the new CD.
