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]

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.

Hope to see you there,
Lachlan and Sue
