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. 

On July 18th we had a very successful fundraising concert at Jackadder's.  Over $1300 was raised for Gillian and Charles, ("Four on Six") our guest performers who had lost their property and possessions in the February bushfire at Gidgegannup.  What a pair of virtuoso musicians they are. 

Sunday 17th October will be Guest performer Dawn Barrington
Dawn Barrington is a contemporary folk singer songwriter with a social conscience. Based in Fremantle, after spending 10 years in Denmark, Dawn is well known in her community for her carefully crafted songs and stories delivered with emotion and authenticity.  Keeping in line with the origins of folk singers Dawn is engaging and her songs tell stories that are catchy, thought provoking, sensitive and sung from the heart. Dawn is passionate about life and loves to engage with her audience and take them on the journey with her. 

Dawn was nominated for the “Best Regional Act” for West Australia Music Industry (WAM) November 2019. Single, “We Live and We Die” released in 2020 was a collaboration with a Kurdish Iranian refugee Kazem Kazemi while he was detained on Manus.

Also performing will be the ever popular Scottish born musician and entertainer Jim McGuire.  He has a long musical history starting as vocalist and lead guitarist with some of Scotland’s top rock groups and show bands before expanding to jazz, folk and opera.  Some of his most memorable performances from that era include supporting stars such as Eric Clapton, The Who, Gerry and the Pacemakers, Manfred Mann, the Kinks, the Animals, Pink Floyd and Moody Blues, to name but a few.

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
