sounds of our town

 hosted by Jumping Fences


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 4th December, 2015.  8.00 p.m.

Our final Foco Nuevo for 2015! It will be a wonderful way to end the year, with our two guest acts, Farmer Brett and Crooked Foot, and 3 Miles from Texas. Be sure to mark it in your calendar!

Farmer Brett & Crooked Foot is a small group of talented and seasoned musicians performing in a laid-back-acoustic style. With two guitars, flute, sax, penny whistle and great three-part vocal harmony, the trio presents a varied repertoire of originals by Richard Farmer and music from artists including Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Christy Moore, Bob Dylan, Supertramp and Dire Straits.

3 Miles from Texas make their third annual December appearance at Foco Nuevo. A slightly different lineup of players and songs from the band coming up for this show with the inclusion of the wonderfully talented singer and performer, Ms Donna Shepherd joining the group for some new songs along with a couple of old faves.

While Michael is away on location in the jungle of tv land and Rose is taking care of biz at the Republic of Woodford: Rob, Steve, Keith, Tony and Donna are on board for a night of music, entertainment and holiday spirit in good company on a fine West End Friday evening. Look forward to seeing you on the 4th... [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.
