Foco Nuevo in October

The monthly performance space hosted by Jumping Fences in the heart of Brisbane’s West End.

Performing this month: Baerg-Roeseli | Silken Thomas | Jumping Fences.

*PRICING CHANGES: After more than 11 years we regretfully need to increase our admission prices. We are facing an increase in costs, in particular hall rental. The new prices will be: Full $12 and Concession $8. We hope this increase won’t disadvantage anyone, and that you’ll agree it is still good value for money.

The Baerg-Roeseli Swiss Yodel and Folkloric group was formed in 1988 and had their first performance at Expo ’88. They perform a variety of traditional yodels, jutz’s and folksongs in Swiss German, French and Italian, and are frequently accompanied by accordeons and ‘kitchen and garden percussion’. Baerg-Roeseli performs regularly at Swiss National Day, festivals, concerts and private events. Last year they were featured on ABC Local Radio.

Silken Thomas Brian Brett, Ian Evans, Rose Broe and Robin Etter-Cleave perform toe-tapping folk music and ballads. Robin has a couple of magic flutes and some wicked whistles, Brian and Ian have guitars that gently weep, and Rose has her own trained accordion and the audacity to play it in public. Come along and enjoy the fun with these seasoned musicians.

With a unique fusion of Latin American and original songs, Jumping Fences create a sensitive insight into the daily struggles of people. The song-writing partnership of Sue Monk and Lachlan Hurse, with Ross Gwyther and James Harper, play arrangements that move easily between tenderness and energy, supporting lyrics that weave a rich fabric from the poetry of everyday life.
