Carers Week 2010: Newport Fiddle and Folk Club

Carers Victoria is the statewide voice for family members and friends who have a disability, mental illness, chronic condition, terminal illness or who are frail and aged. Over 700,000 Victorians provide unpaid unpaid care and support to a family member of friend.

From small beginnings in 1992, Carers Association Victoria was established. The core business of the organisation is about improving health, well being, resilience and the economic security of caring families.

Every year in October, carers across Australia gather to celebrate Carers Week.

The Newport Fiddle and Folk Club were proud to be part of the celebrations providing an evening of singing, dance and storytelling at a dinner arranged especially for the carers in the west. The line up Newport performers included the club choir, Serbian dances, various combinations of our musos performing some old and popular favourites and pictured is the Newport Strings playing Bach.

I was privileged to be invited to share the beautiful story of Edith's Lyrebird. A wonderful night.
