One of the key instruments in traditional Irish music. Identical to the violin, but played differently in widely-varying regional and individual styles including Donegal, Kerry, Sligo, Clare, Galway, Cork and many more.

The Irish Famine of 1845-1851 caused thousands of Irish natives to immigrate to the United States. At this time, many Irish musicians sought employment in minstrel and vaudeville shows to make decent money as fiddlers.
