Where am I?

You may have noticed the thick layer of dust on this blog. I’ve been focusing more on my business than my banjo, and I’ve been traveling a lot.

Hurrican Alex wanders by for a visit

I’ve spent the last several months in Mérida, Mexico, where I’m likely to stay for awhile. It’s a peaceful city on the Yucatán peninsula with Mayan and Cuban cultural influences. My banjo isn’t here but it plans to join me, so maybe I’ll find some (very!) open-minded local musicians and see how salsa or trova rhythms work on the banjo.

I have some ideas for more lessons, so once I’m more settled, I hope to make some more videos.

Thanks for your patience and for the messages I’ve received personally and through your blogs!

    Dear Cathy,

    All of your fans look forward to the return of some new videos. As I said before, you are an excellent teacher, a description most good banjo players can’t claim.

    I’d like to think I’m partly responsible for this post.

    Banjo salsa? Now, that would be interesting! Cheers!

    Yes, I miss your style of teaching. Was wondering about and thought what happened to Toads in the woodpile…glad you gave an update as so many blogs just stop dead in the water never to be heard from again…

    Yay! I am so glad you are back! I find your music inspiring. Actually living in the Yucatan area sounds like a really interesting experience.
