Jumping Fences

Jumping Fences — the hosts of Foco Nuevo — play a mix of original and Latin American songs. Centred on the song-writing partnership of Sue Monk and Lachlan Hurse, the group features Sue's rich vocals, accompanied by nylon-stringed guitar, the colour and rhythm of Lachlan's bass, the jazz-influenced lines of Ross Gwyther on clarinet and tenor sax, and James Harper's drums and Latin percussion style.

The band toured to Cuba in 2017 and 2018, playing at significant venues across the country. Nationally they have performed at the Queensland Multicultural Festival, Woodford, the PAVE Festival in Victoria and numerous festivals and venues in South-East Queensland. Jumping Fences have received national airplay for their single ‘I Never Sing’, and conducted a workplace songwriting and performance project –The Music Shift – in association with the Qld Council of Unions. They have released five recordings, most recently ‘Satellites’. [website]
