The VFMC runs a session on Tuesday evenings (except the second Tuesday of the month which is CONCERT night). 7.30 Australian Folk Songs; 8.00 - 10.15 supportive round-robin session caters for all instruments and skill levels. Enjoy singing, playing, reciting, performing, yarns, workshops etc. on the first and third week. Currently the fourth Tuesdays are all-in round-robin tune and dance set playing and group singing. It's a great way to pick up new material for your repertoire and to play with like-minded enthusiasts. All welcome. $5 members, $6 non members, kids free. The venue is Ringwood East Community Hall, Knaith Rd. Reserve.
In April 2019 we had a first time “Slow Session” where we played well known,
and not so well known tunes at a slower tempo. This gives players new to group playing a
better chance of keeping up, and it gives more experienced players the opportunity to experiment with an
instrument that they don't normally use or to play melodies rather than chords.
Fireside Fiddlers are a group devoted to by-ear playing of collected traditional Australian tunes. They meet on Monday evenings at 8pm in Melbourne's Eastern suburbs.

In August 2017 a survey of members was conducted in order to assess how well the Tuesday sessions were meeting the needs of participants. View the results.
The Club has a band called The Billabong Band which may be booked for dances and engagements. Busking, community functions and other performing opportunities often arise for VFMC members to participate in.
