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.
Each month except January.
September is usually the annual A’ Cappella night.
Platinum Quartet, formed in 2012, is a superb female barbershop quartet, made up of four members consisting of Alison Brown (Tenor), Debbie Neilsen (Lead), Margot Thorne (Bass) and Kerry Haddow (Baritone). These ladies are almost obsessive about their singing! Although they prefer the unique chords and tuning of the Barbershop style, they also enjoy singing the odd song from other genres as well.
LivingSong is a community singing group from Ivanhoe, currently led by Margaret Crichton. 2019 will see them celebrate their 24th anniversary and what better way to do so than with a few performances. The group sings anything from folk to pop, multicultural to gospel and much more, generally in three part harmony. Newcomers are always welcome.
The Scottish Gaelic Choir
The Scottish Gaelic Choir of Victoria was formed in 1997 by a small group of Gaelic learners from the Scottish Gaelic Society of Victoria with a shared interest in the traditional songs of the Scottish Highlands and Islands. They perform primarily in Scottish Gaelic, with a bit of English for seasoning, and have appeared at the National Celtic Festival Portarlington, at the Tartan Festival, highland games and Burn’s Nights.

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
