FOCO NUEVO IN FEBRUARY
Welcome to another year of Foco Nuevo! As we head towards our 6th birthday, we’re really pleased to be starting 2014 with guest acts new to Foco Nuevo; TwoCrows and Para Você.
TwoCrows are ARIA-nominated singer songwriter Sarah Calderwood and acclaimed guitarist and author Paul Brandon. They perform their own material but have been known to occasionally wander off the path and venture a version of someone else’s song. Sarah writes about love, loss, not fitting in, vanilla cities, chocolate crushes, redemption, salvation, heartache, heartbreak, happiness and Anne Boleyn. Paul plays fat strummy guitar in odd tunings. Together they have toured Australia and overseas, played to audiences of 5 to 15,000, been involved in two top 10 albums and drunk more coffee than is medically advised. They have been described as passionate, enigmatic, lyrically brilliant and richly musical. Together, they are TwoCrows. [website].
Para Você present their own exotic take on Brazilian and French standards with some select jazz and originals to add spice to their mix. Featuring piano accordion, double bass, guitar and percussion, each group member is an experienced master of their instrument who adds their own special take to each number. Experience the vibrant energy and musical passion of this new group in one of their first public appearances.
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 next Friday,
Lachlan and Sue
