A good Mando player would also be an option.
Dang ... good fiddlers are hard to come by! When we hear a good fiddler we often joke, "get the burlap bags and duct tape and open the trunk, we're takin' him/her with us". Around here the only way to get and keep a good fiddler is to make sure they're getting paid regularly. Same goes for mando, banjo, dobro, and pedal steel ... ie, anything that isn't a guitar (grin!).
