There are a number of young violinists/fiddlers who are trying to make a mark in the popular world.
I am a fan of total package musicians who have fantastic techniques and impeccable musicianship and above all restraint and taste.
My favorite is Katica Illenyi. Here are a few of my favorites:
She plays in a huge variety of styles:
She plays virtuoso licks with ease (and she sings)
She plays old favorites:

She is the total package of talent, hard work, character, charm, etc. She is definitely someone aspiring popular musicians should look up to.
