Biographical notes

KELLY GILBERT (1895-1991). Northeastern Kentucky. Collectors Guthrie Meade and John Harrod, who made field recordings of Gilbert in the 1970's, paint him as a rather taciturn man, reluctant to elaborate on his music but not unwilling, and a fiddler with amazing endurance at an elderly age, enjoying being able to play tune after tune. In an interview in 2012 with Scott Prouty[1] Harrod said that Gilbert had become, by virtue of his longevity, musically isolated, but that in the early 1970's he had been playing with a group in Frankfort, Ky., called the 65er's that had included fiddler Pop Baker and banjo player Boss Sewell, along with Claude Hellard on guitar and Bill Tom Cummins on mandolin.
