Fiddlers Crossing is an intimate acoustic music “listening room” in the mountain town of Tehachapi, in Eastern Kern County, CA., presenting traditional and contemporary Folk music, Bluegrass, singer-songwriters, Americana, Country, Western, Blues, Celtic, World and other styles. It has a distinctly “coffee house” feel but without all the noise and other distractions. Based on the house concert model, freshly ground and brewed coffees, teas and a variety of “goodies” are included in the ticket price. The vibe is cozy, friendly and warm. Come join us!

Friday, August 7, 7:00pm, “First Friday” Open House with live music–FREE!! (donations accepted)

Every “First Friday,” (unless one of our concerts is scheduled for that date)  Fiddlers Crossing hosts an open house featuring live music, our famous freshly ground coffees, teas and various goodies. It’s a party!! And the BEST part, It’s FREE!!! (tips for the musicians are definitely encouraged and donations toward the refreshments are happily accepted!) In recent months, the venue has been packed to capacity for these events, and why not? We’ve become “the place to go” after folks have wandered around town, checked out all the great arts and crafts, had some wine and hors d’oeuvres at the participating establishments and are not quite ready to call it a night just yet. We open our doors at 7:00pm and don’t close down till around 10:00pm or so. (and that’s SOMETHING for Tehachapi!) If you haven’t experienced one of these evenings, you owe it to yourself to check one out! Seating is on a first come-first serve basis and we are an “intimate” venue (euphemism for SMALL) so get there early to get a seat! We look forward to seeing you there! Doors open at 7:00pm sharp.



The BB Boys (Bumpy Worthington and Bob Schetter) perform for a happy “First Friday” crowd.
