Welcome to Victoria’s Oldest Folklore Club
Suspended VFMC regret that due to the Covid-19 virus, all our public events are suspended until until it is safe for us to resume. Please monitor this web site until normal service resumes.
The VFMC is experimenting with on-line music sessions. All members for whom we have an email address will have been informed. A first trial meeting will be conducted at 7.30 pm on Tuesday 7th April. If you require further information, please contact Don, the sessions convenor .
To support our performers during this difficult time, and for the benefit of our loyal audiences, VFMC are planning to make some concerts available to view on-line. Please monitor this web site for details as they become available.

picture of 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 goals of the VFMC 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.
