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.

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.
