FOCO NUEVO in June 09

Foco banner

Foco Nuevo continues to bring great acoustic performances in the inviting atmosphere of the newly-named Ellen Taylor Community Centre (previously called Ahimsa House).

And a reminder that we’ve got hot meals on offer with our friends Manoli and Nayita bringing their Latin American cooking skills to Foco Nuevo.

Our guests for June are Julie Minto and the Acoustic Union String Band.

Julie Minto: Songwriter/ guitar / harmonica player and vocal powerhouse, Julie has performed solo throughout Australia including Warrego Winery, Tamar Valley Folk Festival, Dorrigo Folk & Bluegrass Festival and Redlands Spring Festival.  She also is the lead singer of celtic-infused folk rock band “Thornlands” that has performed at the Cygnet Folk Festival, Wintermoon Festival, Folk Redlands and Woodford.[website].

Acoustic Union String Band: is a collaboration of four like-minded musicians – Chad and Michelle Swaby, Mark Ruff Cut Anderson and Alison MacKenzie – from the Darling Downs region sharing a passion for good handmade music.

Melodic tunes, with a ‘down on the farm’ feel. Largely influenced by the likes of Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash and Steve Earle blended with a mix of old time Blues, Country and Bluegrass melodies.

Jumping Fences will again be bringing their unique mix of original and Latin American songs with Sue Monk, Lachlan Hurse, Ross Gwyther and James Harper. [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
