Violin vs. Fiddle

Winifred Horan was trained at the Boston Conservatory, has played classical violin with the Boston Pops, and Irish fiddle with Cherish the Ladies and Solas.

So she's heard all the snappy answers to the question: "What's the difference between a violin and a fiddle?"

• When you are buying one, it’s a fiddle. When you are selling one, it’s a violin.
• It’s OK if you spill beer on your fiddle.
• It’s the nut who’s holding the bow.
• $125 per hour and a tuxedo.
• You can’t play a violin barefoot.
• A violin has strings, and a fiddle has strangs.• You’ll never find a violinist with a mullet.
• A violin sings, but a fiddle dances.
