About the San Francisco Scottish Fiddlers
Upcoming performances

Join the San Francisco Scottish Fiddlers and play with us at monthly meetings, community outreach performances, and our annual Spring Concerts. All ages and levels of skill welcome; playing by heart sustained all year long.

We are a volunteer-run organization under the nonprofit sponsorship of the Scottish Fiddlers of California. We meet the third Sunday of the month in members' homes around the San Francisco Bay Area.

Our main activities are:

  • learning tunes from recordings, sheet music, or socially with each other

  • the monthly meeting and jam session with a potluck

  • an annual series of spring concerts as well as other ceilidhs and gigs throughout the year
