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.

The Pioneer chapter serves the Ogden area and holds its jam sessions on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the months. Our jam sessions are held in the Shepherd Union Building, Fireplace Lounge, on the Weber State University Campus. Our regular session runs from 11AM to 2PM. On days when the campus is closed (as on most holidays), alternative locations or cancellations will be listed on the Pioneer Chapter Page.
Please be aware of the designated parking locations on campus. There is no fee for parking on Saturdays.
The public is invited at no cost or obligation. You are free to come or go as you like. Bring your instrument – any “fiddle compatible” instrument is welcome (guitar, banjo, harmonica, mandolin, dulcimer, etc). You may join in if you like, or just sit and enjoy.
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.
