A mutual love of traditional music brought Ellen Hundley and Bill Desailly together. Ellen's fine voice and delicate accordion provides the melody, and Bill's mastery of guitar chord accompaniment provides the rhythm. They perform songs from every corner of the globe - accumulated during their many years of travel.

With a vast repertoire of dances, and one of the best dance callers in Australia, the Brumbies entertain dancers of all ages, from kinder to pensioners, and from experts to beginners. Our songs are mainly traditional Australian, but include some more modern and some international items.

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.
