I met this violin player on the High Line on my sunset walk.   He was playing a bluegrass tune.  Most of the violin players I encounter are playing classical.  Does that make it a fiddle instead of a violin?

I like the American Flag sticker on his guitar.  He and two others played on the car and passed the hat.
