Welcome to the Official Webpage of the Utah Old Time Fiddlers and Country Music Association. We are a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the promotion, perpetuation, and enjoyment of Old Time music. Our purpose is to encourage musicians of all ages, and to provide them with opportunities to improve their skills by performing in public. If you live in Utah, and enjoy the music of the fiddle tradition, then this is the place for you.
Our chapters hold regular jam sessions, and are also available to play for special occasions. If you would like to arrange a performance, please contact the chapter chairpersons nearest you. If you’d like to know more, please feel free contact one of our club officers on the State Organization page, or email the admin.
If you are new to the organization, and would like to get an idea of the sort of music we play, please feel free to check out our media page for samples.
