What’s the different between playing Violin and Fiddling?

Here’s a great Violin v. Fiddle article from Strings Magazine about what fiddling is about.

Did you know that there are a wide range of fiddle “styles”?  Scottish, Irish, Nordic, Mariachi from Mexico, Cape Bretton form Canada are just a few.  and  In the US, we have Blues Fiddling, Cajun and Zydeco, Native American and Old Time which includes Appalachian and Ozark.  Bluegrass, Country and Western Swing fall under the heading of “Modern Fiddling”.
