West Australian Folk Federation Webpages
WAFF was incorporated in 1974. It has served the state entire, and particularly the Perth Metro area, for over four decad es. WAFF is working now to reinvigorate itself and redefine its role as a leader in promotion of folk arts in Western Australia. In the coming months we promise many new and exciting developments. Join us as we work to elevate understanding and appreciation for folk music, poetry, dance, and story-telling.
WAFF supports new and existing WA Folk Clubs through 'affiliation.' Affiliated clubs can receive benefits though WAFF insurance and APRA license fees. Affiliated clubs are asked to pay WAFF a small membership fee yearly to help cover the Federation's expenses for club licenses coverage. WAFF can and sometimes does help with managing clubs and finding performers.
If you would like to start a folk club (especially in the Perth Metro Area) we are here to help you!
Currently two clubs are now officially affiliated with WAFF -

David Hyams, Siar
Wanneroo Folk Club
2nd Friday of every Month 8 pm
Main Act for the night is Something Doing (Peter Grayling - cello, mandocello, mandola, mandolin, vocals and Rachel Armstrong - mandolin, mandola, guitar, vocals).
Something Doing reflects the sparkling era of ragtime music in an authentic and beautifully articulated fashion. From the 1890’s in America, two great crazes shaped the history of music – ragtime, and the mandolin. By the 1920’s, ragtime had morphed into jazz and popularity of the guitar and banjo was growing.
Something Doing play their original arrangements of ragtime classics on vintage mandolin family instruments, and weave tightly honed classic rags with original tunes and songs.
Dorchester Hall, Cnr Dugdale, Warwick. Doors open 7:30pm, music from 8pm
