Welcome to the new pages of the WAFF. Currently we are re-developing the site but these things take time as we learn the new editing platform. Over the coming months we will add more pages such as a gallery of pictures from WAFF events, Minutes of committee meetings and more.
The WAFF was established in 1970 with the principle aim of promoting Folk Music and Dance in WA and attracting the National Folk Festival to WA. We became an incorporated body in 1974. It serves the entire state, although predominantly the Perth Metro area, and has done so for almost five decades. WAFF is working now to reinvigorate itself and redefine its role in promotion of folk arts in Western Australia. In the coming months we promise many new and exciting developments. Join us as we work to elevate understanding and appreciation for folk music, poetry, dance, and story-telling.
WAFF Affiliated Folk Clubs
WAFF supports new and existing WA Folk Clubs through affiliation. Affiliated clubs can receive benefits though WAFF such as APRA license fees and and other assistance. Affiliated clubs are asked to pay WAFF a small membership fee yearly to help cover expenses for club license coverage. WAFF can and sometimes does help with managing clubs and finding performers.
If you would like to start a folk club we are here to help you!
Currently two clubs are officially run by the WAFF (Wanneroo Folk Club & Jackadders Music Club) and a number of other that are affiliated .
