music groups


We enjoy Girgarre Moosic Muster and Jigarre Jammin’ so much that some of us have got together to make the music last longer! These groups perform around the area, although some are currently in recess due to the pandemic.


The Pure Drop

The Pure Drop plays songs from the Australian and Celtic traditions of hardship, love or murder and mayhem, plus some more light-hearted themes.  A group of seven very active retirees, available for Aged Care, Fundraising concerts, Morning and Afternoon Melodies. Lively and loud.  Wallace on fiddle, harmonica; Irene on guitar, accordion; Shane on banjo, guitar, whistle; Pete on harp, guitar, mandolin; Geoff on fiddle; Bernadine on baritone ukulele; Lyn on bass ukulele, mandolin.

J-Ukes 2021

Jigarre Ukuleles

Due to restrictions, we are temporarily meeting in the Kyvalley Park, corner of Scobie and Sinclair Roads.  We're still having fun, you're welcome to join us.

Also known as J-Ukes, this fun group meets at the Girgarre Community Cottage in Olympic Street.  Beginners to advanced and every stage in between, our aim is to have fun and learn something with other people who share our passion for our small instrument. Soprano, concert, baritone, tenor, bass, we have them all. We come from a wide area around Girgarre.

We chat, play, learn, laugh and have a cuppa every Wednesday every month, from 1.30pm to 4pm.  If you would like to join us, contact Lyn on 0417 931 417 or just turn up, you’ll be most welcome!
