FOCO NUEVO in February 2009

$10 / $7 concession
This month we have some great guest musicians who are sure to make this month’s Foco Nuevo a fabulous night.
Paris Dreaming are Ewan Mackenzie and Kay Sullivan – they play acoustic guitar and accordion in French Gypsy Swing style, evoking the atmosphere of the Paris café scene of the 20th Century. Their music ranges from Musette waltzes to Gypsy tunes, from American swing standards to their own self-penned compositions. An evening with Ewan and Kay is a journey through some of the most romantic and delightful music ever written, played by virtuoso musicians with passionate intensity and dash of humour. [website]
Amanda Gilmour flies solo on this occasion on a special return to Foco Nuevo. Performing with her wonderfully sensitive combination of voice and guitar Amanda will bring to life some new original songs and resurrect a couple of favourite covers from JJ Cale and Fleetwood Mac. [website]
Jumping Fences will again be bringing their unique mix of original and Latin American songs with Sue Monk, Lachlan Hurse, Ross Gwyther and Dan Simpson (while James is travelling overseas). [website].
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.
Looking forward to seeing you there,
Lachlan and Sue
