The Toronto Fiddle Collective (TFC) is a community gathering run by local fiddler and teacher Celina Marie. She started the monthly gathering in 2014 as a means for her students to play tunes together as well as learn from and see intimate concerts by other professional fiddlers from all over the world. Now 5 years later, fiddlers and folkies from all over southern Ontario join in on the fun.
Fiddlers and folk musicians of all ages and levels come together on the 3rd Thursday of every month for various fiddle focused events. TFC hosts a new special guest professional musician to run/lead workshops, kitchen parties, jam sessions, concerts, dances and more.
