About 100 enthusiasts of old-time fiddle music gathered at the Oak View Community Center on Sunday for a bimonthly meeting of the California State Old-Time Fiddlers Assn.
Formed in 1974, the association is dedicated to keeping alive the unique style of music, said Ben Chapman, District 8 vice president.
"We draw people from all over the county," said Chapman, 68, a founding member of the local district who plays guitar and sings. "We don't allow alcohol. And we don't allow off-color music or jokes."
"This is something you can take the kids to," he said.
The group is open to anyone who likes old-time fiddle music, Chapman said. It holds jam sessions the second and fourth Sundays of the month at the community center on Valley Road.
