15th Annual Midwest Fiddle & Banjo Championship

  • Old Town School of Folk Music (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The purpose of this contest is to promote the many sounds of fiddle and banjo in the Midwest. It is being organized in the spirit of fun and musical conviviality that accompanied two huge fiddle contests held in Chicago nearly 80 years ago. Players from all traditions are welcome: old-time, bluegrass, Norwegian, Scottish, Irish, Cajun, Mexican, Polish, Swedish, etc. Judging will be done on the basis of musicality. Schedule and registration can be found here. All three days of the contest are free and open to the public. #mfbchamp
