How hard is it to sing and play fiddle?

I suppose this is the same for most instruments, but just the fact that you have the fiddle jammed into your neck, does it make it harder to sing while playing?

I'm not a fiddle player, but I sing. I would not try it due to the neck muscles being in a bad position and tensed up as well. Although with some forms of music, I'm sure it would be okay. I've never seen it done. All the singer/fiddlers I've seen do one or the other but not both.

Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord. See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.

I know a guy that holds the fiddle against his chest and sings while playing. Well, he used to. He plays guitar more now since he had a stroke which limited his movement.
