Come along and welcome Spring with an enjoyable night out at Foco Nuevo!

Rebecca Wright and Donald McKay: Rebecca and Donald’s music has been likened to that of a good Scotch whisky: delightfully smooth with just a hint of roughness; full of character and highly addictive. With voices that can instantly transport you to another place and time, Donald’s traditional and original songs from his native Scotland are beautifully complemented by Rebecca’s insightful originals and thoughtful selection of contemporary gems. Accompanied by requinto, cello, acoustic guitar and bodhran, their shows promise something out of the ordinary and bring you back to the heart of folk [website].

Mark Cryle and the Redeemers: Recently described by Rhythms Magazine as “one of Australia’s finest singer songwriters” whose “pithy and catchy songs resonate deeply and manage to reflect the Australian psyche,” Mark Cryle cut his teeth with the band Spot the Dog but has since emerged as a force to be reckoned with as singer songwriter with his releases Notches on the Wall (2006), House of Cards, (which was voted Folk Alliance Australia’s CD of the year for 2009) and most recently the highly-acclaimed Sideshow Alley.

Mark will be performing with Richard Evans (guitar, harmonica, vocals), Mick Patrick (fiddle, vocals), Sue Hibbs (percussion) and Andrew Heath (bass). These superb musicians join Mark in concert as The Redeemers [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

STOP PRESS: Jumping Fences is also playing a short set in trio format at the opening of “Humour from My Pen” an exhibition of Cuban drawings by Gerardo Hernandez, a Cuban anti-terrorist held prisoner in the US at The Art Factory Gallery, 84 Merivale St, South Brisbane on tonight Friday 31 August, 6-8 pm. All Welcome / Free entry / Refreshments / Organised by the Australia-Cuba Friendship Society [website]
