The VFMCinc - Ringwood East Folk holds a concert on
the second Tuesday of each month (in lieu of the usual Tuesday session). Top
artists from the folk music world appear for a great value acoustic concert.
Open stage acts at the start provide opportunities for aspiring performers to
gain stage experience. Sometimes a support act is also featured.
Penny Atkinson, Louise Horgen and Geoffrey Hall are The Friendly Creatures band. They are a relatively new local folk band who perform a mix of their own lively compositions and traditional acoustic folk. All have played in other bands for many years, including the Dandenong Ranges Hot Jazz Orchestra, and regularly play at local venues, house concerts and festivals.

Due to limited time and popularity the Stage Manager cannot guarantee a slot
to all aspiring open stage performers so it is best to arrive well before a
concert starts to be in the running for a slot. The Stage Manager may give
preference to acts that did not appear the previous month. Time is limited
to 8 minutes total stage time and all performances are un-plugged, that is
no mics or amps. Acts pay normal admission and need to have good audience
rapport and ability in order to add value to a concert.
If a support act is scheduled they are generally allocated 25 minutes.
Supports acts are paid a set fee and we can help sell your CDs and promote your
