Folk Federation of NSW new monthly singing session & MoFo (Modern Folk) Concert

Announcing two new monthly events under the umbrella of the Folk Federation of NSW with the assistance of the NSW Teachers Federation who have kindly given us the use of space in their building 23-33 Mary Street, Surry Hills on the newly refurbished ground floor.

The first is a regular singing session on the second Friday of the month. The individuals who have supported such sessions in the past generally like unaccompanied folk songs and enjoy singing choruses and harmonies; it’s very friendly atmosphere where everyone gets a chance to participate.

The first Singing Session at this venue takes place
on Friday 14th October from 7.30pm – 10.30pm
No admission charge. Bring a plate if you wish; tea and coffee available. No alcohol.
Enquiries: 0427 958 788


The second event will take the form of a concert under the banner of “MoFo” short for Modern Folk on the fourth Friday of the month. It will be a slightly more formal evening; it should appeal to a younger demographic and/or those with a wider definition of what constitutes folk music.





The inaugural MoFo event takes place on Friday 28 October and will feature
an album launch by brilliant young fiddler, George Jackson.
Enquiries & bookings - Mikaela 0466 397 495

You’ll be able to find out more about these events on Facebook under MoFo and also under NSW Folk Federation.

Please come along and enjoy. All welcome!

DIRECTIONS: Mary Street is near Central Station; it is parallel to Elizabeth Street and the Teachers Federation building is between Reservoir Street and Albion Street. The space is warm and cosy and will seat up to 40 or 60 people depending on how the chairs are arranged. At this stage the Teachers Federation has requested that there be no alcohol at the events. It’s okay to bring food, and tea and coffee will be available. There is no charge for attending the sessions but there will be a small admission fee for the Mofo events, the proceeds going to the performers.
