While blogging about McDaid’s Folk Club I realized that the Wanneroo Folk Club, which I established way back in 1985 will be having it’s 30th anniversary soon!

In it’s 2nd year, I handed over the reigns to the rest of the committee , in particular Judith Shaw and Bob Rummary, who have done an amazing job of keeping the club going for nearly 30 years.

In 1985, David Milroy  was new to sharing his music as an original member of Wanneroo Folk Club. Now he’s very much a celebrated and awarded songwriter, performer, director and writer whose plays regularly tour Australia.

My now grown up daughter and I watched him perform in his musical  ‘Waltzing the Wilerra’  not long ago and were completely blown away!

I believe John Ralph as a member of the WA Folk Federation, has now taken over the running of events but continues in the same vein.

Congratulations to them all.
