I'm just curious about where and how poeple are using the clarinet in a non-classical environment.

I'm playing in a two different groups

one plays western-european folkmusic with flute , accordeon, guitar,violin , percussion and of course clarinet/basscl

The other one plays with jazzguitar, contrabas, perccussion and of course

In belgium , clarinets are mostly found in woodwind/brass orchestra's called "fanfare" or "harmonie". They have quite a history and were originally founded to keep the poor workman from drinking and to educate him :-) Googled Belgian beer gives you some clues about this fascinating subject.

As do ggoled belgian fries , because they are the belgian national food and NOT FRENCH ! Just to educate ... No,no no , we don't go that way

Anyway, where are clarinets used for ethnic music , where does it work etc
Please don't give me the standard stuff about bulgaria, servie etc
I really mean : what are YOU doing that plays and works well?
