“Folk Music is as much a way of life as a traditional form of entertainment”

The Folk Scene in Newcastle is currently the strongest it has been since the ‘boom times’ of the early 1970s.  Explore our website to discover the rich variety of regular activities, including –

  • informal instrumental or singing sessions
  • poetry / bush poetry
  • open mic concerts
  • monthly more formally structured concerts with outstanding Australian and International performers
  • annual ‘SessionFest’ camping weekend

We gather to entertain and learn from one another about folk lore and folk music in its many styles, to develop our skills, and help keep our traditions alive.

We sing, play instruments, dance, tell yarns – and basically have a good time in a social atmosphere of mutual support and acceptance.  Many accomplished folk performers come to our club, enhancing friendships and making new ones.

You are invited to join!
