Description

These recordings, made by Peter Hoover in the early sixties near West Liberty, Kentucky, showcase the exemplary fiddling of Santford Kelly. Then in his sixties, he still retained much of the expertise and showmanship he had earlier employed on the radio as Fiddlin’ Sam Kelly. Clarence Kelly, Santford’s son, years after being given a guitar through a trade his father made involving 6 ducks, later became an influential bluegrass musician. Ricky Skaggs, who grew up in this area of Kentucky, also learned from and was influenced by Santford Kelly. – Peter Hoover
