And now we have reached our final Foco Nuevo for 2019! What a wonderful year it’s been! Thanks to all our performers, our volunteers and our audience for making Foco Nuevo such a great event. We’re going out on a high note with the Swing Beans and Sarah Irvine.
Looking forward to seeing you tonight!

|Sarah Irvine Marrying tender dreaming’s with delicate melodies, Sarah’s music invites you to share in musings on friendship and folktales set against the backdrop of more than half a decade consumed by northern wanderlust. Sarah currently lives in Edinburgh and has spent the last two years playing music under the name ‘Weird Cousins’ with dear friend Nici Hosking. In August 2019 they released a self-titled EP of beloved songs born out of a time book-ended by friendships and woven together with gentle harmonies.Facebook |
Swing Beans Come and enjoy the catchy rhythms of acoustic arch top guitars, soaring violin, reverberating bass, and smooth harmony vocals with ‘The Swing Beans’.The Beans are swinging again, playing those infectious songs from the 1920s to the 1950s, some jazz ballads, and some Texas swing classics. They re-invent the songs for a contemporary, but retro appeal.The Beans comprise Lisa Lombardi and Julie Witney on arch top guitars and harmony vocals, Heather Smart on fiddle, and Roger Brand on upright bass and vocals. Get those feet ready to dance!Facebook
Jumping Fences 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.Website

WBT addresses the following questions:
1. Industrial question: The Master/servant relationship. The struggle for Worker Control.
2. Ownership question: Who owns the land or does the land own us? 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.
