The Santa Clara Valley Fiddlers Association (SCVFA) represents close to 200 members from the San Francisco Bay area — from Gilroy to Berkeley, San Francisco to Santa Cruz. And the big surprise: we’re not all fiddlers! SCVFA celebrates music traditions based on fiddle, mandolin, banjo, and guitar, including old-time, country, bluegrass, western swing, Celtic, Scandinavian and many others.
Our music is played on acoustic instruments such as fiddles, guitars, banjos, mandolins, upright basses, accordions, penny whistles, harmonicas, dulcimers, and more. Learn more about SCVFA.
