String her up: non-classical violin music
June 1, 2009 7:14 AM Subscribe
I have a friend who is a violinist. She's only played and listened to classical violin music. Please recommend artists and recordings of non-classical violin.

Stephane Grappelli, and Joe Venuti are great but I don't know which recordings are good examples of their work. I'd like her to get a taste for what is out there including jazz, bluegrass, cajun, kelzmer, and any other genre/artist showcasing good violin/fiddle playing.
