For years now my very favorite place to hear live music in Atlanta has been Fiddler’s Green Cof­fee­house, spon­sored by the Atlanta Area Friends of Folk Music. It used to be held in a won­der­ful lit­tle cabin in the woods — in the mid­dle of Buck­head. You felt like you were in a com­pletely dif­fer­ent place, hon­estly. Unfor­tu­nately the cabin burned down. Hap­pily, there’s a new venue, Steve’s Live Music. It’s a great place for those who are more inter­ested in really hear­ing good acoustic music rather than get­ting drunk or partying.

I used to really like Eddie’s Attic in Decatur, but Eddie isn’t there any more. He’s now with the Red Clay Music Foundry in Duluth. A nice fel­low from a news­group men­tioned a place in Vin­ings, The Moon­bean (770−438−0101), that has live music and a cus­tomer jam on Tuesdays.
