Canadian Grand Masters
Fiddling Championship

2006

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.
