Bobby Kerns Collection

Bobby Kerns is an outstanding fiddler from northeast Alabama. He describes himself as a "breakdown fiddler" and loves all the old tunes, such as Bill Cheatum, Billy in the Low Ground, and Chinese Breakdown, just to name a few of his favorites. Mr. Kerns had a long and successful career in the cattle industry, as an auctioneer and later owning and operating stockyards in Atlanta, GA, Rome, GA, and Fort Payne, AL (where I grew up). He now resides in Piedmont, AL, and has given his express permission for his tunes to appear on
