Falmouth Fiddlers FF@groups.io

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, 2019-21 as the Rochester Country Fair underwent changes with reduced days and hours, and Covid-19. Check for a 2023 Fair.
