Violin or fiddle?
What's the difference between a violin and a fiddle? It's the same instrument, but how it's played creates the definition. The Great River Strings (violin) and Skal Klubben Spelmanslag (fiddle) will illustrate the difference through music at 7:30 p.m. Saturday in the Crosby-Ironton High School auditorium and 2 p.m. Sunday at First Lutheran Church in Aitkin. Admission is $3-$5.
