Welcome to the Official Web-page 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 to 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.

UOTF Hosts the Weiser ID Contest @ Weiser Fiddletown (Weiser High School)
Jun 19 – Jun 24 all-day

It is Utah’s turn to be the host state for the fiddle contest June 19-24 in Weiser, Idaho. Which means we put on a 30 min. program each night as people come in before the contest starts. We will go to some senior care centers and do a gig. We will judge the Certified Fiddle Division. This means that we need members to commit to going to this event and to be willing to play on stage. Please call or email Lynn if you can commit to going.
