We play and promote fiddle tunes and acoustic music around Cape Cod
 
Many of us met through our founder / leader, the late fiddler / luthier Jim Boyce, at a Falmouth Fiddlers' performance, his Falmouth Night School Fiddle Classes, by word of mouth, or chance, and/or were inspired by his former cable TV show "Fiddlin' in Falmouth".

We founded and sponsored the Cape Cod Fiddle Contest (1998-2003), and co-founded and supported the Rochester (MA) Country Fair Fiddle Contest in 2004-2014 and 2016-2018, usually on the 3rd Saturday of August. The Contest did not occur in 2015 and 2019 as the Rochester Country Fair underwent changes with reduced days and hours. It is uncertain if it will return during the August 8-9, 2020 Fair.
