Since its inception in 1977, the Festival of American Fiddle Tunes has been one of the largest celebrations of traditional music west of the Mississippi.
More than 30 faculty members from four different countries share a rich history and diverse styles of fiddle music with hundreds of participants in a weeklong, multigenerational workshop. Classes, band labs, dances, concerts, open jams, and informal and spontaneous gatherings culminate in mainstage performances that welcome thousands of audience members to experience the tapestry of North American fiddle styles.
We’re currently assembling the 2017 gathering. 2017 promises to be an outstanding year for Fiddle Tunes – the first under Joel Savoy’s artistic direction. Registration is now open for 2017 Fiddle Tunes, and the faculty we have confirmed so far is really exciting (with much more still to come!)
