Brumbies bush band
Melbourne's Favourite Bush Band.
Formed in 1978, the Brumbies have performed for generations of Melbourne's folkies and bush dancers.
With a vast repertoire of dances, and one of the best dance callers in Australia, the Brumbies entertain dancers of all ages, from kinder to pensioners, and from experts to beginners.
Our songs are mainly traditional Australian, but include some more modern and some international items.
Family Bush Dance (via Zoom)
Sat 7th November 2020
Zoom virtual meeting
The VFMC has a family bush dance on the first Saturday of each month (excluding January). Dances are called so these events are suitable for all ages. A different band is featured each month and everyone is welcome.
This dance will be conducted on-line via Zoom. Dances have been chosen or adapted to suit couples or single participants in their own home. This will be the first of our Zoom dances featuring live music.
Please provide your own supper at home and stay safe from Covid19.
The goals of the VFMC are:
to preserve, research and popularise our Australian Folklore Heritage of traditional songs, music, poetry, prose and dance.
to encourage the creation of contemporary songs, music, poetry, prose and dance in the traditional style.
to maintain forums where singers, musicians, reciters, dancers and interested organisations may exchange information,
receive help and guidance for the understanding and promotion of Australian Folklore.
