Foco Nuevo in August

8.00 p.m.

Kurilpa Hall
174 Boundary Street
West End

Once again warm yourself on a winter night with music from these great guest artists, Caroline Hammond and Paris Dreaming.

Caroline Hammond is an original singer/ songwriter of insight and earthiness, influenced by a diverse range of musical styles from Blues, to Gospel, Reggae, African ‘hi-life’ and coffeehouse folk. A longtime study and love of Afro-Cuban percussion has made its mark on her unique acoustic guitar and ukulele style. Caroline will be joined by Craig Claxton, a creative and versatile guitarist and veteran of the Brisbane Jazz and Blues scene for over 30 years, and Suzanne Hibbs a percussionist with wonderful feel and energy.

Paris Dreaming are Ewan Mackenzie and Kay Sullivan – they play acoustic guitar and accordion in French Gypsy Swing style, evoking the atmosphere of the Paris café scene of the 20th Century. Their music ranges from Musette waltzes to Gypsy Jazz tunes, from American swing standards to their own self-penned compositions, which are melodic and evocative. An evening with Ewan and Kay is a journey through some of the most romantic and delightful music ever written, played by virtuoso musicians with passionate intensity and dash of humour. [website]

Jumping Fences: The song-writing partnership of Lachlan Hurse and Sue Monk, will be playing their energetic folk, tinged with Cuban flavours. 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
