History

Genesis

Early in 1992, an advertisement appeared the Hills Gazette asking for anyone interested in forming a folk club to call. The result was 6 musos in the lounge room of Chris and Mary Woodward in Sawyers Valley. This club was the brainchild of Vic Dent (below).
Vic was, and still is, a true believer in folk music and was really keen to see some folk happening in Mundaring.
This early meeting did not result in a folk club. The problem was that, although there were many keen to be in the audience, it was difficult to find players

What came from that meeting was a long friendship between Chris and Steve (who still play together at the club from time to time). Another advertisement in the Gazette, from Mandy Vincent, and interest from Liz Packwood resulted in Tanglewood (above), but there was still no folk club.
But slowly the hills community was dusting off it's guitars, whistles, mandolins and flutes. Musicians seemed to be appearing out of the woodwork. The first meeting of what was to become the Mundaring Folk n Blues Club, was held in the Mundaring Sharing center on Philips road in November 1995.
