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.


We are back and firing on all cylinders for Term 2! Our weekly Thursday meetups will resume on July 16th. Our first ceilidh (of the year!) is on August 8th, more details to follow!
