sounds of our town

 hosted by Jumping Fences


Welcome to the homepage of Foco Nuevo, the regular performance space for Jumping Fences, where we hold concerts on the First Friday of every month.

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


4 May, 2018 8.00 p.m.

Again we celebrate International Workers' Day in song. Our guests are the Combined Unions' Choir, the Spanish–Speaking Women's Voices and Sue Wighton, who makes a welcome return.

Combined Unions' Choir: Formed in 1988, the Combined Unions Choir is the longest 'Art in Working Life' project in Australia. They have sung at concerts, protests, May Day, and peace rallies; entertaining people with their repertoire of political, peace and social justice songs. 'A movement that sings never dies...'.

Spanish–Speaking Women's Voices is a group of women from the Spanish-speaking community who express themselves through song. Come and hear some of their favourite songs from across Latin America.

Sue Wighton is a Brisbane-based singer/songwriter and journalist. She loves to share her sometimes original and quirky, sometimes borrowed and heartfelt songs and her love of words—both spoken and sung—with audiences. She has been known to bake.

Jumping Fences: the song-writing partnership of Lachlan Hurse and Sue Monk join forces with Ross Gwyther, James Harper, Dan Simpson and Rob Stewart to create an innovative style inspired by a long association with Latin American singer-songwriters. [website].
