What's the difference between a fiddle and a violin?

If Bill Kearns of Slater is playing it, it's a fiddle. If Betty Swisher of Marshall is playing it, it's a violin. Same hunk of wood. Same strings. Different sound.

They play similar instruments and they've been entertaining music lovers in Saline County for many years, but Kearns and Swisher belong to very different musical traditions.
