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.
