Bobby Hicks plays Maiden's Prayer
Bobby Hicks is great, I've seen him play many times with Skaggs. My favorite fiddler is the late great Vassar Clements (RIP).
Mark O'Connor does it all....tremendous guitar player also
Joe Spivey has the best intonation I've ever heard live from a fiddle player
+1 for Mark O'Connor. I still kick myself for missing him when he came through my hometown.
Mark O'Connor.A great old friend from long ago.Loved playing with him.
Killer mandolin player as well.
Darol Anger (and of course vassar clemens and stephan grapelli),
I think Nigel Kennedy would take some beating in the fiddlers category.
Charlie Daniels is no slouch
Honestly, I don't know how to judge the best fiddler. Is it the guy who can say more with one note than all those shred fiddlers?
Gabe Witcher is no slouch either .
Jerry Goodman and Allen Sloan aren't too shabby either.
best? don't know/don't care. my #1? that's easy.
I love Shankar's playing - just love that Indian style. He sounded great with One Truth Band too:
Being a fiddle player myself, I'm a huge fan of all these guys. Don't forget to check out Aubrey Haynie, Luke Bulla, and Stuart Duncan.
Stuart Duncan is one of the most amazing musicians I have ever had the pleasure of seeing live...twice!
Another nod for Mark. Saw him with The Dixie Dregs in the early 80s and I thought my head was going to explode.
Kenny Baker! Michael Cleveland!
He'll be playing in Nashville this Friday night with JACK PEARSON.
...I'll be bringing an extra pair of pants.
