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.

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.

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
