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 folk concert held on the First Friday of every month.

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

Friday 5th June, 2015.  8.00 p.m.

Thanks to our very loyal following who made our celebration of May 1st an enjoyable night in spite of the incredible rainfall. Here's hoping the drama of our our June concert is confined to the music! You're sure to enjoy our guests, Paul Bonetti and Luna Junction.

Paul Bonetti: Brisbane singer/songwriter and composer Paul Bonetti is known for performing a diverse collection of songs armed with his voice and acoustic guitar. His brand new album for release in May 2015 is jam packed full of tunes that map out moody, bluesy, quirky tales of suburban love-lorn sentiment, and smatterings of indie-pop, R&B, country-shufflin and soulful acoustic ballads.

Luna Junction 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 will be available.
