Foco Nuevo in December

7th December, 2018

Even newer starting time!
Doors open 7.00 p.m.
Concert starts 7.30 p.m.

The people have spoken! We had a very democratic decision taken by audience members last month on the starting time! Note it down — 7 for a 7.30 start! So join us for our last Foco Nuevo of 2018, with guests 3 Miles From Texas and Para Você.

3 Miles From Texas: Returning to the December slot, the band will bring their special guests and feature an extended line-up performing songs from the new CD Next. The EP has 5 new songs featuring A Song For Selma which was released in September on the 50th anniversary of the passing of Dr Martin Luther King. No surprises — copies will be available…

Looking forward to seeing everyone… to share the songs and the night with the wonderful Foco audience. [website]

Para Você (For You) draws its inspiration from the great popular music of Brazil, France, and America, presenting the best of café jazz with classic songs from the Golden Era, 1930s to the 1980s. The group features piano accordion, guitar, double bass, percussion, and the charming voice of Stephanie Dick.

For their performance at Foco Nuevo, Para Você will be playing songs from the South American Songbook as well as great tunes from France, and the home of tango, Argentina.

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

Entry is $10 and $7 (concession)
