"violin techno-acoustic fusion"

Curved Air.

Roxy Music. (The song, "Out of the Blue," from 'Country Life' is a highlight of Eddie Jobson on way cool electric violin.)

One of Peter Gabriel's band-mates plays an electric violin on the "Secret World Live" album. Loreena McKennitt also has a band member playing one on her Alhambra concert.

And then there's "On the Future of Aviation," by Jerry Goodman.

X2 on Jean-Luc Ponty. I stumbled onto him in the mid 80s and he is quite amazing. Open Mind is a good introduction

The Frames - Set List

Phenomenal straight ahead Irish rock band. The singer has now become mildly famous for his costarring role in Once.

The Wonder Stuff ... technically, I think it's an electric fiddle. Anyway, Never Loved Elvis, Hup, and Construction for the Modern Idiot are their main albums.

Blue October.... for starters I suggest their song "inner glow".
