FOCO NUEVO IN NOVEMBER
Our guests this month are Asch Rose and The HooHa Band. Don’t miss out!
Asch-Rose: New Zealand born singer/songwriter Asch-Rose sings with unaffected purity and an astonishing ability to delight and captivate. Drawing influences from folk, country and blues legends – Bob Dylan, Ray Charles, Clapton, Cash and Young, Asch-Rose holds a raw and soulful lucidity. Calling more than one town home, she writes intimately and dynamically of life, love and the longings of a restless heart.
Today, she is delighting Australian audiences and was a national finalist at Sydney’s “Breaking Ground Competition” in 2012 by Sony Music and Hard Rock Cafe. Earlier this year, Asch-Rose recorded “The Bootleg Sessions”, a handful of raw acoustic originals available at performances throughout Brisbane. [website]
The HooHa Bandperforms a range of musical feels – from a laid back jazzy groove, to something more upbeat that swings hard. With many many hours of event and festival experience, they aim for a distinctive acoustic sound even when playing amplified. They constantly receive great feedback about creating that vibrant, festival feel.
They are an experienced and seasoned group of players, with a diverse repertoire, who have a unique voice in the world of Gypsy Swing. The group performs in a line-up that ranges from a two-guitar duo to a five-piece ensemble including; two acoustic guitars, bass guitar, EWi, and cajon. For Foco Nuevo the line-up is Mia O’Brien on swingin’ rhythm guitar and vocals, Tim O’Brien on razor sharp solos, Jodi Murtha on pulsing bass, and Suzanne Hibbs creating hip and grove on Cajon.
Although the music of Django Reinhardt is still at the core of the band inspiration, they have learned to take Gypsy Swing, in a broad range of directions. [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 next Friday,
Lachlan and Sue

People from all directions.
A note to indigenous people, Workers BushTelegraph may contain recordings, images and songs of people who are deceased.
We address the following questions:
1. Industrial question: The Master/servant relationship. The struggle for Worker Control.
2. Ownership question: Who owns the land? Rights to the city, right to country. The struggle of indigenous people for land rights and social justice in Australia.
3. Political question: This is the class struggle. Who owns the means of production? Who governs? How are democratic rights won and shared.
