Jumping Fences invites you to the next Foco Nuevo concert. We aim to provide an eclectic mix of musical styles while continuing the folk tradition of highlighting lyrics which reflect the breadth of contemporary life. This regular music event is held on the last Friday of each month and features a diversity of Brisbane singer-songwriters and musicians.
We will be playing as a five piece band, with Ross Gwyther (tenor sax and clarinet), James Harper (percussion) and Dan Simpson (drums).
Our guests artists for June are:
Wendy Murray and friends:
Wendy Murray, singer, songwriter and instrumentalist is currently the lead singer and driving force behind Latin Jazz band, Hot Mambo and jazz/funk/blues outfit THe Wendy Murray Quintet. Her voice is deep, rich and warm as honey. Wendy will be performing with Louise Denson (piano), Sacha Kloostra (drums), Jeremy O’Connor (bass) and Clint Allen (trumpet and flugelhorn); performing original music by herself, Louise and Jeremy.
Amanda Gilmour with Rose Broe: will be performing their songs of love, lost hearts, broken wings and a few bitterly-twisted reflections of life, blending folk, Irish, jazz and country flavours; with blissful vocal tones and sensitive musicianship.
Foco Nuevo is a reference to Brisbane’s FOCO Club, a lively and alternative performance space which ran on a weekly basis during the late 1960s.
Hope to see you there,
