About The SHACK

The Shack Live Music Club is a local music venue operating on the first Saturday evening of each month in the Ted Blackwood Hall, Jackson Road, Warriewood. It is one of Sydney's live music gems, providing an entertaining and diverse range of modern and traditional, quality acoustic music for those “who love to listen”! 

Music genres presented include Folk, Contemporary, Country, Original, Blues, Modern, Traditional, Klezmer, Blue Grass, Swing, Celtic, African, Americana and much, much more!

Originally a folk club started in Narrabeen in the 1960′s, by such luminaries as Greg Quill and Country Radio. It was revived again in the 80′s as The Twentieth Century Folk Club and then it was relaunched in 2006 as The Shack presenting live music to the great delight of musicians and music lovers alike. 

The Shack started the trend of quality music being presented in a cabaret style atmosphere with tables, chairs, tablecloths with candlelight where our audience is encouraged to bring their own food and drink making for an affordable and enjoyable night of live music and entertainment.

The Shack Live Music Club is a not-for-profit organisation where all income goes to cover the cost of the artists and production.

Technology is redefining the music and entertainment experience, but nothing can replace the shared joy and involvement of the live performance by talented and dedicated musicians and performance artists.

The Shack Live Music Club is a great night out to be shared with friends and the community. Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30 start and goes till 11.30pm presenting three fabulous acts each month. Entry is $30 at the door or online either by shackfolk.com or the Facebook Events page. Annual memberships are offered as an incentive at a cost of $30, hence entry is then $25 per month.

After each show the webpage is updated with next month’s performances including biographies and links to the artist’s social media pages, with a new event created on Trybooking for the purchase of tickets. Performers are encouraged to share the Event on Facebook or Instagram.
