Caroline Hammond

Caroline Hammond is a more than just a singer songwriter; she is a natural weaver of song stories, playing with the tapestry of life and spinning joyous music from the grace and beauty of the overlooked, the everyday and the commonplace.

Jumping Fences

Jumping Fences — the hosts of Foco Nuevo — play a unique mix of original and Latin American songs. The song-writing partnership of Sue Monk on guitar and vocals, and Lachlan Hurse on electric bass, together with James Harper on drums and Ross Gwyther on tenor sax and clarinet, perform arrangements that move easily between tenderness and energy. Over three decades their poetic and insightful lyrics have explored the lives and feelings of people living on the margins or caught in the midst of struggle.

‘Sometimes you can sing what you cannot say…’
