Traditional Music FAQs

More Info
  • What is the difference between a violin and a fiddle?

    They are essentially the same instrument. The difference is mainly in how they are played. When people say violin they’re usually talking about classical music, and fiddle generally refers to folk music. Sometimes players use a different type of bridge and strings.
