Community Outreach Performances

During the winter months FOG performs, free of charge, at local nursing homes and other senior care centers. We look forward to these occasions as an opportunity to brighten the spirits of people who cannot come out to our regular concerts. Furthermore, we enjoy these gigs at least as much as our audiences do!

If you have a relative who lives in, or if you are affiliated with, a nursing home or other care facility in the area, and you would like the Fiddlers of the Genesee to perform, please leave a message on our hotline (585 234-3582), or send an email message on the Contact Us tab to submit a performance request.

 

Summer Season Performances

From late spring through the summer months and into early fall, FOG performs before the public at weekend festivals throughout the Greater Rochester area., FOG also presents a variety of old-time fiddle music programs at libraries, museums, art galleries, historical sites and town gazebos on weekends as well as during the week.

Audiences, young and old, consistently respond favorably to the lively fiddle music featuring reels from the Appalachian mountains, Irish jigs and hornpipes, Texas western swing tunes, Bluegrass breakdowns, Civil War and other Americana ballads and, of course, sweet waltzes. The music is timeless and universal in its appeal to all audiences,

FOG charges a fee on par with other high-quality acoustic music groups in the Greater Rochester area. In keeping with the FOG status as a not-for-profit corporation, all of our performance fees are used to further the FOG goals of preserving and promoting the tradition of old-time fiddle music in the area of upstate New York. When requested, FOG can provide our own sound system at performances.
