Founded in 2019, Finger Lakes Fiddle Orchestra brings together beginner to expert level musicians from around upstate New York and northern Pennsylvania. Our members play a wide range of instruments beyond the fiddle. These include the banjo, mandolin, guitar, bass, cello, penny whistle, and other traditional instruments. All are welcome!
Inspired by The Vermont Fiddle Orchestra and The Fiddle Orchestra of Western Massachusetts, FLFO was created to provide a supportive environment where musicians of all skill levels interested in exploring fiddle music can develop and practice their skills. Under the guidance of our Musical Director, Tim Ball, we learn, arrange, and rehearse fiddle tunes from a variety of American and Celtic styles.
