Welcome to Victoria’s Longest Running Folklore Club

VFMC is delighted to be back to live events in halls. We will carefully follow all government health directives, including limiting numbers according to density limits where necessary. Please check event details on this web site before attending in person. We will update details of specific events as quickly as possible.

We anticipate that some people will remain cautious about attending public events. We will continue to support our audiences and participants as best we can by continuing Zoom on-line access to our events while there is demand.

Next Concert
Concert
11th October 2022 7.45pm until 10.00pm


Featuring:

Zampoñistas

Zampoñistas

The Zampoñistas are Australia's premier roving Bolivian Pan Pipe Band. Their act is unique. The haunting tones of the Andean panpipes and a heartbeat of percussion create a swirling, syncopated, high energy chorus of sound, the sounds of the Inca realm. Dressed in bright ponchos, they weave in and out of crowds, twisting, turning - totally engaging audiences and bystanders alike! Some call it guerrilla music, some call it pop-up music. They bring joy and delight wherever they play.


Supported by:

Rebecca Jane and Marty McKenna

Rebecca Jane and Marty McKenna

Rebecca Jane and Marty McKenna's voices create a rare kind of magic. Their country-folk songwriting is unique and heartfelt and their performances are captivating, with deft guitarwork and beautiful harmonies. The pair have been singing together sporadically for over 10 years, and were recently honoured with a Troubadour Foundation Award to record their debut album with Rod McCormack after a stunning performance at the 2022 Burke and Wills Folk Festival. Their musical influences range from Americana and bluegrass to English country folk - but with a uniquely Australian feel.

COVID-19 Arrangements

The VFMC Committee is regularly updating COVID-19 arrangments in line with current government rules and guidelines. We are especially mindful that many of our members and event patrons are concerned about risks of infection. We endeavour to strike a balance between these concerns and the prevailing practices in the community generally. Additional specific details may be found on both the Concerts and Dance pages
