I've heard alot of good stories about J T perkins. I'm his 4 cousin on my mom side of the family, any ways he was the best fiddler in the world. Between him and roy Crawford ( now recently passed away) they was competing with each other on fiddle. Sometimes roy won and sometimes j t won. Not only that, but in the fiddler competition, not only he won but he was crown 5 or 7 times( I think) at a fiddlers competition.
