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.
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 line-up is variable and depends on which musicians are available at the time.
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.
