        We are the Monaro Folk Society Tuesday Night Music Group. The group was formed 25 years ago. We meet each Tuesday in Canberra (hence the imaginative name), taking turns to host the sessions in our own homes: for the last year we have been meeting at the Canberra Irish Club to play on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month. This friendly, spacious venue suits our growing numbers. You can see some of us in the photo above at one such session.

        We generally consider ourselves to be somewhere between beginners and intermediate level musicians, but what we all love about this group is that we do not have to be afraid of making mistakes. Some members have learned 2nd and 3rd instruments due to the acceptance and encouragement of this group. We have also some very experienced musicians. Safety in numbers for new people.

        We play a variety of instruments including accordion, concertina, fiddle, banjo, bouzouki, mandolin, lagerphone, keyboard, ukulele, whistle, flute, recorder, percussion and guitar - occasionally harp & autoharp.

        We normally play a few jigs, reels, polkas and hornpipes on any given night, but we are happy to try pretty much anything provided someone brings enough photocopies of the tune to go around (we tend to read tunes from music - but a few members can play by ear).

        From time to time we perform in public. In particular we ...
