    Default Old time fiddle tunes for Mando on Slippery Hill..Kelly Perdue

    There’s a new page on the Slippery Hill website with over 60 old time fiddle tunes recorded on mandolin at slower speed for instructional use, by my good buddy and band mate Kelly Perdue before he passed away, way too early. He ran through each tune just a couple of times...you can listen online or download the sound file as you wish.

    If you’re not familiar, Slippery Hill is a great site with tons of source recordings of fiddle tunes, & well worth exploring.

    Here’s Kelly’s page: https://www.slippery-hill.com/collection/kelly-perdue

    Pete, thank you so much for posting this! Kelly and his music need to be more well known in the larger mandolin community. A lot of tunes here would be hard to find otherwise.

    "That's my rabbit my dog caught it" is on my to learn list.

    See you soon.

    You’re very welcome, Lappy, and thanks for the condolences. Kelly passed away in 2005, so the pain has subsided somewhat, but we still miss him a lot. His elder son, Ben, now plays his old F5, and he, together with the twin sons of another member of Mando Mafia, and a couple of other guys, won the same competition at Clifftop that Mando Mafia won all those years ago. It made us very proud. The name of their band...’Take Two’.

    Pete- I loved your band and Kelly's playing. Thanks for the heads up on those recordings.

    BTW Slippery Hill is a fantastic source for recordings of old time music. Donate if you use or download from it. Larry Warren maintains it out of the goodness of his heart.

    Thanks for the kind words, Jim. When it was suggested to Larry that these recordings be put on his site, he was immediately enthusiastic, and you’re right, Slippery Hill is a great source for recordings, and well worth checking out.
