Vic Folk Weekend Tune Fest, 29 September – 1 October 2017

[Update: Tunefest 2017 was a great weekend – thanks to everyone who took part! Vic Folk is now looking ahead to a few summer events and another programme of music in 2018: check out the contact page if you’d like to get in touch, find out about events, or pitch an event of your own.] 

The new Victoria University Folk Music Club is hosting a mini festival in Wellington city over the weekend of 29 September to 1 October 2017, featuring a concert, workshops, sessions and a ceilidh, showcasing the local Irish and Scottish traditional music scene, and young Wellington musicians.

So come in from the cold and warm up with some tunes, whether in concert, for a dance, or in some informal sessions around town.
