Jackadder’s Music Club was formed in August 2003 at the time that the West Australian Folk Federation was discussing ways to promote 'live' Folk Music in the community. 


"FOUR ON SIX"   featuring


Violin–guitar duo with a difference - class, fun, romance, groove, nostalgia...everything a music-lover could wish for.  Gillian Catlow, free-lance violinist and founding member of the Australian Chamber Orchestra, spent 20 years in Germany and Austria playing with some of the most illustrious orchestra’s in Europe. While living in Munich Gillian met Charles Hoernemann who had begun his performing career at 17. After working as a recording artist in Paris, Brussels and Cologne he moved to Munich, where he quickly became the most sought after studio guitarist.

Since reconnecting in Western Australia in 2009, Gillian and Charles have developed their own distinctive musical style and have released four instrumental albums.

2021 has been devastating and life-changing for Gillian and Charles. On 1st February the Wooroloo bushfire ripped through the couple’s Gidgegannup property, destroying the home they had just moved to 15 weeks earlier.

Apart from the three violins and one guitar they took with them when they fled the approaching fire, everything else, including 19 guitars, a 1927 Steinway grand piano, extensive LP collection, stage equipment and books, was turned to ash.

They are now living in South Fremantle, taking the time they need to start afresh. Copies of their last two CDs, Vol 3 (mixed genre) and Four on Six Plays the Beatles, can be purchased at the performance. 

The club encourages ‘live’ family entertainment and is run by Carmel and her husband Eric.     

Jackadder’s has grown since its inception and an average of 50 people attend each month.  There is a great variety of both professional and amateur performers taking part and often young performers are included in the afternoon’s line-up. It is a great opportunity for like minded musicians to network, build friendships and share their love of music.  

People of all ages enjoy the shows and are encouraged to join in by the performers. Our oldest performer to date was eighty nine and the youngest seven except for the performing pooch 'Poppy' who was only five!!   All styles of music are encouraged and verse is also popular at the club.

Adults only $12 and children FREE Afternoon tea included
