Folk-us Nights - Informal nights of Australian songs & recitations focusing on a particular themeFolkus Nights with Margaret Walters - Part 2 - October 1983 to March 1984
From the Archives - Margaret Walters collection ... when the BMC theme nights moved to Tritton Hall, I became involved in running those “Folkus” nights every month for about 6 years. I would select a topic, choose an artist/s to do about 30 minutes on the theme and plough through my songbooks seeking out as many relevant songs I could find. It was a wonderful way to learn a lot of material. I remember a night of songs of coal with Bob and Margaret Fagan.
