50Bonnie Rideout
51Jeremy Abshire

Raw talent. Has an ear for the fiddle and can make it sing. You don't find natural talent like that anymore.

One of the best fidfle players out there. He was on the cover of Fiddlers Magazine in the summer of 2012.

54Jean Carignan

Greatest Fiddler of French-Canadian Music, but also combined elements of Scottish and Irish Fiddling. Certainly one of the greatest North American Fiddlers. Was a friend of Yehudi Menuhin.

56Alasdair Fraser

Alasdair doesn't seem to play the fiddle as much as he extends his heart through the instrument and it comes out as perfect music. I keep looking for a fiddler that is even in the same league, is tone, and touch and heart and effortless play are impeccable and inspiring.

One of the finest fiddler and writer of fiddle tunes alive! I can't believe this master isn't on here already.

57Jacob Bennett

Damn good fiddle player

58Sara Watkins

What an omission! Nickel Creek is one of the best groups ever assembled. I've seen them twice and they were beyond fantastic both times.

Not to have Sara even on this list is beyond ridiculous. I've seen her twice and she is a fantastic player and entertainer.

59John "Chank the Fiddler" Jeansonne

Fiddler for Country Music Group Rascal Flatts from January 2002 - January 6, 2015.
