Welcome to the homepage of Foco Nuevo, the performance project
of Jumping Fences, where we have adapted the Latin American peña into our own informal concert held on the First Friday of every month.

Our home base is Kurilpa Hall at 174 Boundary Street West End.

Friday 3rd June, 2016.  8.00 p.m.

Come and warm yourself with the wonderful music on offer at our first Foco Nuevo for winter 2016, with our guests Luna Junction and Ian Dearden. Hope to see you there!

Ian Dearden: For the past 40 years, Ian Dearden has been a passionate musical performer. From his high school rock band to university folk clubs, in solo, duo and band configurations, Ian has performed and busked at clubs, pubs & festivals throughout Australia, UK, Ireland, Europe and the USA. Ian's skilled guitar playing, heartfelt singing, and a repertoire that includes original, traditional and contemporary songs never fails to engage. [website]

Luna Junction: can be found at the heart of West End's burgeoning arts scene performing an eclectic mix of original and traditional music. Sailing with ease across a universe of sounds, songwriter Shani Forrester leads the audience and her troupe to explore the realms of gypsy, world, folk and jazz music. [website].

Jumping Fences: the song-writing partnership of Lachlan Hurse and Sue Monk join forces with a group of experienced musicans to play their energetic folk, tinged with Cuban flavours. Their original works contain imagery and styles that reveal both an incisive insight into Australian life and a long association with Latin American culture. [website]

Entry is $10 and $7 (concession)

Cakes, tea and coffee available.
