GUEST,Ripov can posh instruments play folk music? (83* d) RE: can posh instruments play folk music? 30 Nov 14

No instrument is specific (though it may be traditional) to folk or any other music unless deliberately specified by the composer (and even this is often honoured in the breach rather than the observance)- musicians play various types of music on whatever instrument they are capable of playing and have to hand. And a violin is a fiddle, just as a double bass, nykelharpa, rebec, viol or anything played with a bow is (possibly excepting the "musical" saw).
Does "traditional" furniture need to be made with a pole lathe and stone knives?
