Foco Nuevo in July 08

Jumping Fences invites you to our next Foco Nuevo concert. We aim to provide an ecelctic 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.

Brother Man Dude

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 July:
Brother Man Dude plays an idiosyncratic style of folk and country-tinged indie pop. With the demeanour of an irreverent but authoritarian schoolmaster, He will take control of the room. With his partner in crime, Sister Mother Lover, Brother whips the audience into submission. His instructions after all are only to help you find your way in life.

Graham Gorrie has been musically active since 1994, living in Brisbane, writing original songs and arranging them for solo and band performance. “If I had to describe my music I would say alternative folk which makes some sense with my influences including Richard Thompson, Ed Keupper, and Martin Stephenson.”

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,
