Colorado Oldtime Fiddlers’ Association
Welcome! The Colorado Oldtime Fiddlers’ Association (COTFA) is dedicated to promoting and preserving the traditional American art form of old-time fiddling. We sponsor and support fiddle contests across Colorado, including the Colorado Fiddle Championships; provide fiddle and guitar workshops; sponsor square dances; hold jam sessions; and support community outreach programs, including the El Sistema music program.
The 16th Colorado Fiddle Championships was a huge success on the opening weekend of the National Western Stock Show!
The public was entertained by some of the best fiddlers from Colorado and across the United States, on January 6 & 7, 2018 at the National Western Stock Show.
Thanks to our professional panel of judges: Alita Weisgerber, Marty Elmore , Sherry McKenzie, and Starr McMullen. Also thanks to our esteemed staff guitarists: Anthony Mature and Joey McKenzie and to our incredible sound engineer: John Lardinois.
