- ALL AGES
Blair Crimmins began his current music career in Atlanta, Georgia, with a determination to bring Ragtime and 1920’s style Dixieland Jazz to new audiences. While playing small rock clubs around the Southeast he developed a sound that is at once modern while being deeply rooted in the past. Now five years, and many hundreds of shows later, he has toured the country playing large venues and has opened for national acts such as Mumford & Sons, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, and O.A.R. A multi-instrumentalist and music academic, Crimmins writes songs and arrangements for a classic New Orleans style horn section consisting of Trumpet, Clarinet, Trombone. His debut release “The Musical Stylings Of” became a college radio sensation on WRAS Atlanta making him the most requested band on the air. In 2012 Crimmins showed his musical diversity by writing and recording the full score for the independent short film “Old Man Cabbage”. The following year, Crimmins was the critics pick for Best Songwriter of 2013 in Creative Loafing’s Best of ATL issue. His next album entitled Sing-a-longs! went to #21 on the EuroAmerican radio Chart and earned him an nomination at The Georgia Music Awards for Best Jazz Artist.
Blair has now released his anticipated 4th studio album You Gotta Sell Something!
