In spite of the delay here is the second interview! The GremlinsDuo consists of clarinetist Tim Fitzgerald and multi instrumentalist Jon Goodman. After developing a strong friendship at Southern Illinois University they formed the Gremlins duo to continue playing together and promote contemporary clarinet music. In this interview we discuss their upcoming tour as well as a variety of topics related to the clarinet and new music. Find out more about the gremlins duo here.

It’s my goal to get a traditional blog post written every week between podcasts. Here you will find a range of information related to the music scene in Atlanta. This is not intended to be a comprehensive list of upcoming events. For that you can go here, here , or here among many other places. Please comment with any other good lists of upcoming concerts! Guest writers spots are also in the works.

Sharing YouTube videos seems as good a way to get started with this blog as I can imagine. The sheer range of genres in which unbelievably creative people are working is one of my favorite parts of the music scene in Atlanta. I’ve picked a small handful of videos from jazz, and indie rock ensembles, as well as new music groups to illustrate my point. I’ll save commentary for a more gifted writer than I. Enjoy!
