Illinois Old-Time Fiddlers Association Monthly gathering
The Illinois Old-Time Fiddlers Association has a monthly gathering in Shelbyville,IL every third Sunday of the month. The Gathering is held at the Lion’s Club Building in Forest Park from 2 p.m. – 5 p.m. The focus of the gathering is on keeping fiddle music alive, but the round-robin group also sings song (gospel, country, and tin-pan alley). Anyone interested in playing the fiddle, playing back-up for fiddlers, or just wanting to hear some fiddle music is welcome!
You can find out more about the Illinois Old-Time Fiddlers Association, including information on the annual contest, at http://www.illinoisoldtimefiddlers.org.
We generally do not meet for the gathering on the month of the contest--usually the contest is on the Sunday when we would normally have the gathering! Sometimes we have workshops or classes, and you should check the web site to see if any are scheduled.
