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 3rd October, 2014.  8.00 p.m.

After last month's fabulous performances, we're bound for another great night with the very welcome return of Luna Junction and Robin Etter-Cleave & Brian Brett. Make sure you get along!

Robin Etter-Cleave & Brian Brett have been playing together for over 17 years. With Brian on guitar and vocals, and Robin on flute, penny whistles and vocals, they play a fun mixture of Irish, English and Aussie folk along with some touches of Irish Trad.

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.

Humble and joyous with undertones of nonsense, Luna Junction's playful live show has been handcrafted in local cafes, bars and marketplaces, establishing a distinctively broad repertoire and a strong and varied following of devoted supporters. [website]

Jumping Fences: the song-writing partnership of Lachlan Hurse and Sue Monk, will be playing 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.
