Dan Kelly

Here’s a video lesson from Nashville fiddler extraordinaire Dan Kelly. Dan is featured in the Summer 2011 issue of Fiddler Magazine (“Dan Kelly: Grand Master’s Fiddle Champion at the Grand Ole Opry, Carnegie Hall, & Beyond” by L. Scott Miller). In this lesson, Dan explains a few of his techniques in the tune “Tugboat,” part of which is transcribed in the Summer 2011 issue (to purchase, please see the Store/Subscribe link at left).

Here’s Dan playing the whole tune, accompanied by Scott Miller (2010 Grand Master’s Traditional Fiddle Champion) on guitar:
