Sarah IrvineBorn under the southern star side of the Milky Way with a passion for climbing trees and weaving stories, Edinburgh based musician Sarah Irvine’s delicate and tender vocals will breeze their way straight through the open window and into your heart. One half of folk duo ‘Weird Cousins’, Sarah has developed a sensitive song writing style that invites you to share in musings on friendship and folktales. Sarah’s whimsical wit, combined with her collection of songs, tales and traditional balladry will bring you, wistfully back to a place called home.
The Combined Unions ChoirScience says we renew every cell in our body over seven years. The Brisbane Combined Unions Choir knows about renewal. Thirty four years old, (some are even older) the Choir has thirty voices, sings four part harmony, and renews energy through its commitment to issues of social justice, peace and workers’ rights. The Choir hibernated on Zoom through 2020, and produced Under the Cover of Covid in 2021.
Now the Choir is live at peace rallies, protest meetings and Friday night at Foco Nuevo!
Jumping FencesJumping Fences — the hosts of Foco Nuevo — play a unique mix of Latin American and original songs. The song-writing partnership of Sue Monk on guitar and vocals, and Lachlan Hurse on electric bass, together with James Harper on drums and Ross Gwyther on tenor sax and clarinet, perform arrangements that move easily between tenderness and energy, supporting lyrics that reveal an incisive insight into Australian life.
