Welcome to the home of Troubadour Central Coast
Folk and Acoustic Music Club


Coming Events

Saturday 4 May
Theme Concert and Troubadour 20th Anniversary Celebrations

As the twentieth century drew to a close, the Troubadour Folk and Acoustic Music Club was established in Woy Woy to provide an opportunity for performers and folk music lovers on the Central Coast to hear and play great music.  It’s a magic place, where the audience suddenly becomes the performers, where everyone joins in the chorus and many of the audience know all the words.  Now, well into the 21st century, it’s time to celebrate twenty years of this magic.

On Saturday 4 May, founding members will be returning to Woy Woy to entertain and be entertained by current club members and other local performers taking part in what promises to be an unforgettable evening of music and celebration.

The Troubadour has grown over the past twenty years and in the past twelve months has needed to move from its traditional home in the Woy Woy CWA Hall to find a larger venue to accommodate the ever increasing audience. Now well established in the fabulous St Lukes hall, the club is widely regarded as one of the most successful Folk Clubs in Australia. Performers come to the Central Coast from the USA, Canada, England, Scotland and Ireland and from all points across Australia to play, sing and recite in front of the famous Troubadour audience.

Local performers have always enjoyed a warm welcome at the Troubadour and will be prominent in the festivities on 4 May. So too will some of the long-standing acts that have developed through the Troubadour: great groups established by founding members of the club, such as The Usual Suspects and The Blues Angels will be performing alongside long term favourites such Warren Targett and Linda Campbell. There will be plenty of music from current members and local performers. If you’ve been in the past, you know why it’s so successful. If you’ve never been before, it’s a great night to come and find out what makes the troubadour so special.

All tickets just $8 at the door. All funds raised will go to the Central Coast Bipolar and Schizophrenic Fellowship.

Performers, please book with Michael: 4342 6716
