Annual Activities
Return to "About the San Francisco Scottish Fiddlers"

This is a summary of the main happenings in SFSF’s year.  Most of these events recur every year, but watch the newsletter for additions, details and changes. (This list does not include other Celtic happenings where SFSF is not specifically involved.)

Monthly Jam Session and Potluck Dinners

The fiddlers meet for a jam session, workshop and potluck dinner on the third Sunday of each month. Members take turns hosting the meetings at their homes in the greater Bay Area, typically within a 1-1/2 hr drive of San Francisco.
