The 9th annual Colorado Fiddle Championships were once again a tremendous success! We enjoyed the talents of many home-grown Colorado fiddlers as well as greats from around the United States.

Our 2011 winners feature our Grand Champion, Ms. Katie Glassman, of Denver, Colorado. Katie has been playing and participating in fiddle contests since the age of nine years old.

Congratulations Katie and all the other 2011 Colorado Fiddle Championships winners. More results from the contest can be found below!
