Chapters of the NYSOTFA 

     Currently there are seven chapters that comprise the NYSOTFA.  Each chapter supports the mission of the NYSOTFA by preserving, promoting and perpetuating old time fiddle music in their respective regions.  Each chapter is governed by the elected leadership within their chapters.  The chapters of the NYSOTFA perform at various local musical events, at assisted living facilities, regional fairs, town parks, dances and all sorts of other venues.  You might even consider starting your own chapter in your region of New York State and becoming a part of the New York State Old Tyme Fiddlers' Association!  At the present time, the following chapters make up our organization:
