Tuesday Night Music Group


The Monaro Folk Society is a non-profit community organisation, here to enhance your enjoyment and personal growth through active participation in the arts, and a range of community and social activities.

We run a variety of regular dance workshops and events as well as participatory music sessions and performance opportunities in Canberra all year round. Even if you are a beginner with no experience you are most welcome to attend these and see what we have to offer.  Feel free to contact us for further information.


MFS AGM – Thursday 8 October 2020.  Click here for information.


Although our dance events have been suspended due to Covid 19, we are holding music sessions.  The format for these is usually a core group together in one location while using Zoom for other remote musicians to join in the proceedings. Click here for information.

We have prepared a Covid Safe Plan as guidance for organisers of group sessions.
