Welcome to VicFolk, the Victoria University of Wellington Folk Music Club

We play, dance to, and sing mostly traditional Irish and Scottish music. If you’re interested in playing or singing trad music, dancing or listening, get in touch, or keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates on events. We welcome folk musicians who’d like to put on participatory folk music events. You can also book our band to play at your event.


Our next events are:

Meet-ups and workshops run every Thursday 7-9pm during term time, at VUW Kelburn Campus.

Vicfolk at International Dance Day, 1-1:45pm, Sunday May 2nd, Te Papa.
International Dance Day returns after a year’s hiatus, and Vicfolk is priviledged to have been asked back again! We will be hosting a quick-fire ceilidh in the foyer on Level 2 (outside the Gallipoli exhibition)

Here’s Vic Folk playing at International Dance Day at Te Papa in 2018. Thanks to Don Laing for the video! (More under ‘About VicFolk‘).
