Foco Nuevo in May
Friday, 6th May, 2016
174 Boundary Street, West End (map)
Our May Day Special, again celebrating the labour movement in song with some guests whom we’ve shared a passion for music that matters. Come along and enjoy the night!
ALSO: A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: Jumping Fences will be playing at the Labour Day celebrations in the RNA Showgrounds on this Monday, along with others playing at Foco Nuevo – members of the Combined Unions’ Choir and Phil Monsour. The music will be starting around 12.30 or so, and we’ll be on between 1 and 1.30.
Jumping Fences: the song-writing partnership of Lachlan Hurse and Sue Monk join forces with a group of experienced musicans to play their energetic folk, tinged with Cuban flavours.
The Jar Some of the wildest and most original music you will hear around sunny Brisbane. Drawing on traditional tunes and songs from all over, The Jar also incorporates originals, contemporary pop, rock and modern folk.
Phil Monsour “is a musician-activist who immerses his art in political solidarity. He sees music as an extension of his political being, and his political being as the crucible for his music.”
The Combined Unions’ Choir Formed in 1988, the Combined Unions Choir is the longest ‘Art in Working Life’ project in Australia. >>
