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.

A 'Round Robin' session is for singing, playing, reciting or story telling. We all take turns to perform in a supportive atmosphere, or you can just watch and/or join in as you wish. You may suggest an item for everyone to join in. Audience welcome.

Bruce Watson

Bruce Watson

Bruce Watson's performances are joyful and thoroughly engaging, with witty lyrics and energetic presentation. He is a masterful craftsman of songs, be they evocative and heart wrenching, or side-splittingly funny. Bruce is an icon of the Australian folk scene. Based in Melbourne, he plays regularly at festivals, folk clubs and other venues throughout Australia. He has received a stack of songwriting awards and had his songs covered by performers of the calibre of Eric Bogle, Joe Dolce, Greg Champion, and a host of other Australian and international performers

Next Dances
Family Bush Dance (hall)
3rd December 2022 8.00pm until 11.00pm


The Billabong Band

The Billabong Band

The Billabong Band is the Victorian Folk Music Club's own performance group and is probably the longest established band in Australia playing traditional music for Bush / Colonial dances and for concerts. The line-up is variable and depends on which musicians are available at the time.

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.

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
