Welcome to the Texas Old Time Fiddlers Association official website.
Founded in 1973, the Texas Old Time Fiddlers Association (TOTFA) exists to promote and preserve Texas Style fiddling as a traditional artform. By hosting fiddling events such as contests and conventions, we hope to raise awareness of our unique historic style of music.
Always happy to see friends new and old, we hope to see you at the events shown below.
