Rough Red

Formed way back in the mid-1990s, Rough Red’s brand of contemporary folk music has been heard throughout the world for the past several decades, courtesy of seven European tours and constant radio airplay on the continent and back home here in Australia.

The Reds have released eight albums in their 28 year history, with songs that reflect their Australian heritage and extensive travels. Their records reveal a quintessential brand of contemporary folk music, plaintive tales of love and war, homages to national treasures, manic mandolin and accordion-infused stories of pirates and the sea.

The tyranny of distance, with members all living in different parts of the country, together with their various solo and other musical projects, means that they rarely get together to play these days. So the band is very excited to announce a series of tour dates in October this year, in their home state of Queensland, kicking off with the brilliant world music house concert series Foco Nuevo.

Jumping Fences

Jumping Fences’ songs traverse working lives, migration and exile, and everyday hopes and joys. Their long association with Latin American music resonates deeply in their own compositions. They toured internationally to Cuba in 2017 and 2018, and nationally they have performed at numerous festivals and venues in South-East Queensland and Victoria. They have composed songs for choirs and conducted workplace songwriting and performance projects in association with the Qld Council of Unions. They have released five recordings, most recently ‘Satellites’. [website]
