BYO – Ahimsa’s application for a liquor licence is slowly making progress!

The line-up of Jumping Fences is: Sue Monk (guitar and vocals), Lachlan Hurse (bass), Ross Gwyther (tenor sax and clarinet), James Harper (percussion) and Dan Simpson (drums). Our repertoire features original and Latin American songs that explore the intersection of art and social commentary that has characterised much of music in Brisbane for many years.

Our guests artists for September:
Jason Machado has been performing Brazilian popular music for over 20 years on both the eastern coasts of Australia and Brazil, singing a selection of the wonderful songs from Brazil – a country famous for its extraordinary music and its sensuous, melodious language. With voice and seven-string guitar he has performed MPB (as this genre is known) in a multitude of situations both as soloist and leading his trios & new six-piece ensemble. At Foco Nuevo Jason will be playing with cellist Nicole Kancachian.

Mark Cryle and the Redeemers: Mark Cryle writes and sings, plays the guitar and the mandolin. Formerly Mark was the principal songwriter with Spot the Dog. When Spot the Dog closed up shop, after thirteen years of top-quality performance, music lovers mourned the passing of a group that was one of Australia’s acoustic music flagships. Praises be, Mark is staying with his musical profession; in his solo album ‘Notches on the Wall’ his writing talent’s just as true as it ever was.  Sensitive contributions from his band, The Redeemers, add just enough of a lyrical setting to make the gems shine brighter.

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,
Lachlan and Sue
