Lonnie Martin Lonnie Martin loves to sing. In kitchens, in cars, in sessions and on stage, but especially with her friends. She grabs every opportunity to sing and play, from blues to gospel even a little rock; while remaining earthed in the folk tradition.

For this Foco Nuevo, Lonnie will include a selection of songs from the great singer/songwriter/activist Alistair Hulett. [website]

Combined Unions’ Choir: Formed in 1988, the Combined Unions Choir is the longest ‘Art in Working Life’ project in Australia. They have sung at concerts, protests, May Day, and peace rallies; entertaining people with their repertoire of political, peace and social justice songs. ‘A movement that sings never dies…’ [website]

Jumping Fences: The song-writing partnership of Lachlan Hurse and Sue Monk, will be playing their energetic folk, tinged with Cuban flavours. They will be playing with Dan Simpson, Ross Gwyther, James Harper and Robbie Stewart. Their original works contain imagery and styles that reveal both an incisive insight into Australian life and a long association with Latin American culture. [website]

Hope to see you there,

Lachlan and Sue
