With a cloud over the future of the Ellen Taylor Community Centre we have changed our venue to the Kurilpa Hall in Boundary Street, West End (next to the West End library).
The Kurilpa Hall has been the venue for many wonderful functions in the past, and we’re sure that it will be a welcoming space for Foco Nuevo.
Ichabod’s Crane: Ichabod’s Crane is the musical moniker taken by Brisbane based artist, Charity Carleton. Her dusky folk offerings take on a new light in 2009, as she is joined by cellist, Sophie Adamus and drummer, Melinda Laidlaw. Ambient layers of sounds, from acoustic guitar, cello, keys, drums & voice, intertwine with intriguing lyrics, to create pieces which wind themselves delicately through the minds of the audience. Ichabod’s Crane has performed in Brisbane, Melbourne, Northern NSW and in Japan, as well as at Peat’s Ridge Festival 2008-09. She collaborated with Portuguese artist, the Partisan Seed, in 2008, on his second album, ‘Indian Summer’, with the duet, ‘Ofelia’, receiving high rotation airplay overseas. Her most recent solo release is the 2007 EP ‘the Devil and the Deity’. [website]
Migill: In March 2008 at the Maidenwell folk gathering Gillian Smith (fiddle, mandolin and vocals) and Michael Bourne (guitar and vocals) were jamming quietly on the afternoon of the last day. A musical partnership formed, friendships were forged, and the jamming has continued. Michael and Gillian have recently formed the duo Migill playing a collection of songs and tunes of different genres influenced by a variety of performers. Mostly they love playing together and sharing the music with other players and audiences alike.
Jumping Fences: Jumping Fences, the song-writing partnership of Lachlan Hurse and Sue Monk, will be playing their energetic folk, tinged with Cuban flavours. While Ross Gwyther is away overseas, they will be accompanied by Robbie Stewart (lead guitar), Dan Simpson (drums) and James Harper (percussion) along with special guest Leonor Orellana. Their songs extend the folk tradition, and give new insights into the breadth of contemporary life. [website]
We are pleased to have Nayita and Manoli offering their tempting Latin American food as well as Maggie’s wonderful cakes. Tea and coffee available.
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
