Welcome to the VFMC

Victoria’s Oldest Folklore Club

Our goals are:
  • to preserve, research and popularise our Australian Folklore Heritage of traditional songs, music, poetry, prose and dance.
  • to encourage the creation of contemporary songs, music, poetry, prose and dance in the traditional style.
  • to maintain forums where singers, musicians reciters, dancers and interested organisations may exchange information, receive help and guidance for the understanding and promotion of Australian Folklore.

Next Concert
Tuesday, 8 May 2018 — Bill Jackson & Pete Fidler
Bill Jackson & Pete Fidler
Bill Jackson and Pete Fidler are two of Australia's top folk and roots musicians. They have toured the US four times together. Jackson marries compelling melodies and fine musicianship to clever, witty, poignant lyrics that never underestimate the intelligence of his audience. And US website acousticmusic.com described Fidler as ‘ranking up there with a handful of people on my best of dobro/resonator players’ and of Jackson and Fidler being ‘joined at the hip’ in a ‘symbiotic musical relationship’.
