                    WELCOME !

      We are the Tuesday Night Music Group - part of  The Monaro Folk Society . The group was formed some 25 years ago. We normally meet each Tuesday in Canberra (hence the imaginative name), taking turns to host the sessions in our own homes. But over the last year or so we have become so numerous that we have exceeded most of our home capacities and been meeting instead at the Canberra Irish Club. 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 like 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 and 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 - as the 'Tin Mugs' - we perform in public. In particular we ...
Spinning guitar Put on bush dances for children - either in the woolshed or at local schools
Spinning guitar Provide backing for 'Dancing in the Park' on Stage 88 in summer (December to February)

      It does not cost anything to join in with us so if you think you would like to come along one Tuesday, pick from one of our :
