WOW, what a blast from the past!

I guess playing for moonshine and squirrel skins wasn't enough, Perlman had to go where the big bucks are... classical.

Or he was taking a little break from the classical to stock up on moonshine and squirrel skins.

One of them Straddy-various fiddles would probably play ok if you put a rattlesnake rattle in it and stuck a squirrel tail under the bridge to tame down the ring a little bit..
