More likely religion might cause bowing wars. I'm agnostic and only care how musical a fiddler sounds.

I agree, but would also say neither of them were dance fiddlers. Their playing was great in a bluegrass band (or any of the many genres they played) but would have been less than desirable for a dance. That is where the strong down bow is put into context, guiding the dancers to the next figure and phrase.


  I would say that for Vessar but not for Hartford: he used to dance himself while fiddling!
