The NAAFC Festival has introduced a donor button which will provide spectators on the day, or supporters in general, to financially support this virtual event.

This will be a totally anonymous, discretionary opportunity to make a monetary contribution for the entertainment you continue to enjoy at the 

NAAFC Festivals.


Your continued support is invaluable to the preservation of this and other NAAFC hosted events.


Thank you.

Chairman's Welcome

THE ANNUAL NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF ACCORDION AND FIDDLE CLUB CHAMPIONSHIPS


I think we all agree that we have been subject to very trying times over the last 2 years, as a result of the Covid pandemic and particularly over the last few months due to the new Omicron variant.


It is therefore with a heavy heart and after much deliberation that the Festival and NAAFC Executive Committees have come to the decision that we should cancel this year’s Festival at Grangemouth Town Hall on 05 March 2022.

On behalf of the Festival committee, I sincerely apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause to those that have made arrangements to attend the Festival.


The Festival committee had previously met to discount the running of a second full Virtual Festival in March as we were hoping that we could return to our live Festival.


However, after various discussions we are delighted to announce the launch of:

THE NAAFC VIRTUAL diMINIshed° FESTIVAL 2022


Our adjudicators for this unique event are Jackie Raeburn - Accordion and Stella Wilkie - Fiddle.

Given the time constraints we face, we have decided to operate a smaller virtual festival than in 2021 with a total of five classes available to competitors. Each class is open to accordion and fiddle entrants, with piano/keyboard accompaniment permitted. The adjudication will be carried out by both adjudicators independently, with aggregated marks deciding the results.


The classes are as follows: -

1. Class 1 – Under 16 Marches*

2. Class 2 – Under 16 Waltzes*

3. Class 3 – Open 6/8 Marches

4. Class 4 – Open Gaelic Waltzes

5. Class 5 – Own Composition

*Under 16 Classes will incorporate Under 12 and Under 10 competitions


We are hoping to encourage as many entries as possible and therefore we are pleased to announce that entries, for all competitions, are free.


Please note that the closing date for submitting your video entries has been set at 21:00 on Saturday 19th February 2022.


We are currently liaising with BBC Radio Scotland with a view to showcasing winners on “Take the Floor” on Saturday evening, 05 March 2022.


We will continue to post updates to this webpage and the Facebook page.


We hope that THE NAAFC VIRTUAL diMINIshed° FESTIVAL 2022 will bring some cheer to you all, building up to 

5th March 2022.



Richard S Ross, Festival Chairman
