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.

Nick Charles
With dazzling melodic finger–picking on six and twelve string guitars, stinging bottleneck slide and a lifetime’s stories and songs gathered or written on the world’s musical highways it’s no surprise that Nick Charles is labelled internationally as “Australia’s virtuoso of acoustic roots and blues.” During his extensive and acclaimed career, Nick has released more than a dozen albums on major Australian and US roots music labels.
