About the Fiddle

We like to joke that the Ten Pound Fiddle is more a “state of mind” than it is a “place.”

However, The Fiddle is best described as an organization of volunteers that has presented concerts and dances in a variety of  Lansing/East Lansing area venues since our inception in 1975.  Click here for more info about our venues. For more about our formative years, take a look at Bob Blackman’s A Brief History of the Ten Pound Fiddle.

If you think bringing this wide range of music and dance to the community is important or would enjoy seeing how it happens “behind the scenes” – please consider joining us! Volunteers are always welcome. Learn more.
