"Sharing the joy of music is one of the best jobs out there."
INDIANA FIDDLERS' GATHERING
The Indiana Fiddlers' Gathering is a not-for-profit organization built on a dynamic fellowship of committed individuals that hail from our local communities, big industry, small business, academia, fellow musicians, artists and most importantly, our supportive loyal & loving fans.
Our job is to continue to enrich the lives of our collective by preserving traditional music through performance, education and outreach.
The Music Festival – Everyone loves the Gathering! Coming up on 50 years, the Gathering is a nationally renowned 3-day acoustic music festival featuring the finest old-time, jazz, bluegrass, Celtic and folk music- all on one big beautiful stage. IFG is held annually, always the last weekend in June, under the big shady oaks on the lovely grounds of the Tippecanoe Battlefield Park in Battle Ground, Indiana. #IFG49
Special Concert Events- With the burgeoning music scene in the Greater Lafayette area, IFG is excited about all the possibilities to get new talent up on stage at the unique music venues in town.
We envision concerts popping up on small stages, intimate, dimly-lit patios or in an open field- Let the music play! #sharethemusic
Fiddle & Banjo Classes - The future of any art form is dependent on the next generation. IFG partners with the Tippecanoe Arts Federation’s After School Arts Program-ASAP- offering classes and providing instruments to local youngsters, ages 8-16, to encourage enthusiasm, love and joy for traditional music. #growthemusic
Log Cabin Records- Get your music here! IFG continues to release high quality Compact Discs of music featured at IFG. Many archived hours of incredible performances from the past 40+ years, making it possible to everyone to enjoy the pleasure of darn good music!
IFG Traditional Music Center- It’s a dream. It’s a very good dream. Our vision is a place where the music and history of dedicated work, joyous performances and fellowship will be experienced by all that pass through our doors. #buildittheywillcome
