Colorado Old Time Fiddlers’ Association

In Memory of Kaitlin Kenney

Welcome! The Colorado Old Time Fiddlers’ Association (COTFA) is dedicated to fiddling of all kinds, with a special emphasis on contest (Texas Style) fiddling. We produce contests across Colorado, culminating in the Colorado Fiddle Championships at the National Western Stock Show, and provide workshops and other helpful programs for aspiring and veteran fiddlers in the Rocky Mountain Empire.

The 13th annual Colorado Fiddle Championships at the National Western Stock Show once again hosted some of the best fiddlers from around the country.  Eighty-five contestants competed for over $8,800 in prize money.

Katie Glassman of Denver Colorado was our Grand Champion for the second year in a row, winning our top prize of $1,200.  Anthony Mature of Huntsville, Texas was our Favorite Guitarist appearing 95 time on stage.  Many thanks to all our contestants, accompanist, judges and volunteers who made the Colorado Fiddle Championships a success!

As always, thanks to The Quality Inn, Denver for hosting our out of town guests.  We appreciate their continued support of the Colorado Fiddle Championships , our contestants and their families.
