Welcome to IOTFA!

Opening Ceremony of the 2019 Illinois State Fiddle Contest at the Effingham (IL) Performance Center, October 27.

The Illinois Old Time Fiddlers Association is a not-for-profit organization. The group was formed and hosted its first fiddle contest in 1965, then incorporated in 1966.  The association is dedicated to reviving and furthering Old Time Fiddle Music, to the preserving of the Old Time Tunes and fiddling techniques, and to the passing on of this traditional form of entertainment to the younger generation.  The young folks are our future!  We encourage you to embrace these goals and become a member of this association.   Please join the IOTFA to share your enthusiasm, your talent and to contribute your expertise to help achieve these goals.  We welcome your participation and appreciate your support.

We have Monthly Meetings and our yearly event is the Annual Fiddle Contest.

 

Hi to all,

   After collecting comments and opinions of the officers of the IOTFA President Junior Hobson decided that cancelling the June third Sunday meeting/jam would be prudent.

   And we will evaluate the situation in July.
