Welcome to Victoria’s Longest Running Folklore Club

VFMC is delighted to be back to live events in halls. We will carefully follow all government health directives, including limiting numbers according to density limits where necessary. Please check event details on this web site before attending in person. We will update details of specific events as quickly as possible.

We anticipate that some people will remain cautious about attending public events. We will continue to support our audiences and participants as best we can by continuing Zoom on-line access to our events while there is demand.

Velvetones

The Velvetones launched onto the Australian music scene in 2018 and quickly established themselves as one of the country's leading a cappella ensembles. They performed to sell-out audiences and received glowing reviews following appearances at the Melbourne International Singers Festival, Adelaide Fringe Festival, Voices in Paradise (QLD) and Hobart Festival of Voices, where they have been festival favourites for several years running.

The Billabong Band

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.

VFMC children's bush dance on the third Saturday of each month during school terms. Dances are called and these events are tailored to suit school age children. A different band is featured each month. Parents or guardians are welcome attend and to participate in the fun.

COVID-19 Arrangements

The VFMC Committee is regularly updating COVID-19 arrangments in line with current government rules and guidelines. We are especially mindful that many of our members and event patrons are concerned about risks of infection. We endeavour to strike a balance between these concerns and the prevailing practices in the community generally. Additional specific details may be found on both the Concerts and Dance pages
