JACKADDER'S MUSIC CLUB

On the 3rd Sunday of each month from 2.30pm to 5.00pm, the West Australian Folk Federation presents entertainment for the whole family at Jackadder’s Music Club in the Woodlands Reserve Hall, Teakwood Ave, Woodlands, Western Australia. Each month features a special guest artist plus quality support acts. It gives performers a great opportunity to network and connect with other musicians.

SUNDAY 16th FEBRUARY

Jackadder’s welcomes top UK Clawhammer Banjo Player, Guitarist and Singer DAN WALSH on Sunday 16th February.

BBC Folk Awards Best Musician nominee Dan Walsh combines ‘virtuoso playing and winning songwriting’ (MORNING STAR). Describing what Dan does is no easy task but at the heart of it is British, Irish and American folk music delivered with a healthy dose of funky grooves – all performed with his unique and dazzling take on clawhammer style banjo helping to challenge all preconceptions about the instrument. Add to all that poignant songs, astonishing musical departures and lively humour and the result is a truly memorable live show which has wowed audiences across the world from intimate seated rooms to huge dancing crowds in festival fields.

Walsh has recorded five albums to much critical acclaim and he is an in demand performer with a hectic touring schedule in the UK, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, India and throughout Europe. 

He is also greatly in demand as a teacher and teaches banjo both in person and over Skype and is the only international banjoist to be invited to teach at the Midwest Banjo Camp in the USA. He also teaches at Newcastle and Sheffield universities. Dan also retains a passion for outreach work and has performed throughout the UK in hospices, hospitals, special needs schools and care. homes.  www.danwalshbanjo.co.uk

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. 

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
