May Day 

We’re really happy to be playing at the Queensland Council of Unions’ Labour Day celebrations on Monday 6th May, at the Brisbane Exhibition Grounds, following the Labour Day march.

We’ll be on after the speeches on the main stage. See below for details.Looking forward to seeing you soon!regards,
Lachlan and Sue

Albert Revelo
Uruguayan-born Australian Albert Revelo presents a synthesis of politically-motivated popular songs that evolved from exiled artists of the regimes of Uruguay. On guitar Albert plays his own rhythmic patterns fusing Afro-Uruguayan candombe rhythms to a classical heartbeat. The songs presented are not his own but maintain his cultural integrity and at the same time maintain an Australian persona. Albert brings forth his emotions through rhythmic prose and protest. 

Combined Unions’ Choir
Formed in 1988, the Combined Unions Choir is the longest ‘Art in Working Life’ project in Australia. They have sung at concerts, protests, May Day, and peace rallies; entertaining people with their repertoire of political, peace and social justice songs. ‘A movement that sings never dies…’.

Sue Wighton
Sue Wighton is a Brisbane-based singer/songwriter and journalist. She loves to share her sometimes original and quirky, sometimes borrowed and heartfelt songs and her love of words—both spoken and sung—with audiences. She has been known to bake. 

Jumping Fences

Playing a unique fusion of Latin American and original songs, Jumping Fences create a sensitive insight into the daily struggles of people. This month sees a return to the big line-up, with Dan, James, Ross and Robbie joining the song-writing partnership of Sue Monk and Lachlan Hurse playing arrangements that move easily between tenderness and energy, supporting lyrics that weave a rich fabric from the poetry of everyday life.
