Canadian Grand Masters
Fiddling Championship


In the late 1980s, the Canadian Grand Masters Fiddling Championship
 was conceived by a group of people interested in preserving
 Canadian Old-Time Fiddling and giving recognition
 to the excellent fiddlers found across Canada.
The first competition was held in 1990.
