Foco Nuevo in July

6th July, 2018 8.00 p.m.

Join us on our return from our tour of Cuba, energised and ready to go! Our guests are Caroline Hammond, and Penny Davies & Roger Ilott.

Caroline Hammond is a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist of insight, honesty and earthiness. Artful, lyrical and profoundly evocative, Caroline draws inspiration from a diverse range of musical genres, from blues to gospel, reggae, African 'hi-life' and coffee house folk. With acoustic guitar, ukulele and resonant voice as her vehicles, she will take you on a journey through life, loss, love and the magic of ordinary things, this is acoustic music to move the feet and the soul! [website].

Penny Davies & Roger Ilott have been interpreting and writing songs about Australia and singing folk songs reflecting their Celtic roots, for around 35 years. They have released 20 albums of quality folk music during that time.

Penny's honest vocal style, their trademark warm harmonies, Roger's 12 string fingerpicking magic and a passion for telling stories through song, characterise their intimate concert performances. [website].

Jumping Fences: Fresh from their tour of Cuba, Jumping Fences will be playing their unique fusion of Latin American and original songs. The song-writing partnership of Lachlan Hurse and Sue Monk join forces with Ross Gwyther on tenor sax and clarinet, Dan Simpson on drums and James Harper on percussion to create an innovative style. Their dynamic arrangements move easily between tenderness and energy and their lyrics weave the rich poetry of everyday life into broad social themes [website].

Entry is $10 and $7 (concession)

Cakes, savouries, tea and coffee available.
