Welcome to VicFolk, the Victoria University Folk Music Club.
We play 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 a platform for putting on their own events. We also take bookings.
Practices are running weekly on Thursdays, from 3 May till 7 June, 6pm to 7.30 at 86 Fairlie Terrace, in room LT006. MAP on this page.
