I recently saw  video of a man playing "Tom Dooley," an American folk song, on an erhu. Does anyone here know of recordings of other American songs being played on an erhu? Can erhus be used to play most fiddle songs?

Not only fiddle songs but also others:

Variations on the Carnival of Venice

My Heart Will Go On

Jasmine Flower

Katyusha

二胡的音域狭窄,表现力差。另外也没有和弦和双音,特别是更换里外弦时声音有一个中断,这对音乐家来讲,是致命的!

Erhu narrow range, performance is poor. Also there are not any chords and dual tone, particularly when you change the strings,  voice is interrupted, all these to the musicians, it is fatal.
