'Carolyne and Linda are professional, down to earth, uncompromisingly authentic, caring and fun to be with'... Donna O'Brien
'From the minute I met Carolyne and Linda, I was met with love and respect.....What they are giving to our community is so important, so worthwhile.'
Linda Telfer and Carolyne Forte both have over 25 years experience in the music industry. Their musical background is diverse and includes studying at UWA, teaching, facilitating workshops and performing in various bands. They are passionate about mental health, community connection and sharing the joy of music.
Linda and Carolyne commenced the Fearless Women's Circle in October 2017 in an effort to create a safe space for women to come together in support of each other, and build confidence by embracing the idea that 'Life begins at the edge of your comfort zone'. As the Fearless Women's Circle grew from weekly circles to include weekend retreats, Linda and Carolyne realised that the connection that comes from people drumming together needed to be available to men, children, families and entire communities, hence, Circles of Connection was born.
Linda lives on a property in Waroona with her 21 year old son. She loves to spend time in her garden and can often be found hanging out with her pet geese and other animals.
Carolyne homeschools her 13 and 11 yr old children on a property in Coolup. When she isn't taxiing her kids to their various social activities, she is spending time in her garden.
