Foco Nuevo in June

1 June, 2018 8.00 p.m.

Come and join us as we celebrate the coming of winter with a night of music that is bound to warm your soul. Our guests this month are Gone Molly and Sarah Calderwood.

Gone Molly Winners of three titles in the Australian Celtic Music Awards 2018, songwriter Sally Harris and Declan Affley Award winner Rebecca Wright are the new voices of contemporary Anglo-Celtic folk. With voices that blend evocatively and deliver with an exquisite intensity, Gone Molly brings to life colourful characters and stories steeped in mythology, mysteries, love and loss. Recently joined by talented multi-instrumentalist Lachlan Baldwin, this is an enchanting act you don't want to miss [website].

Sarah Calderwood is a multi award-nominated singer songwriter who writes about love, loss, not fitting in, vanilla cities, chocolate crushes, redemption, salvation, heartache, heartbreak, happiness and Anne Boleyn.

As lead singer of renowned Celtic and Americana bands Súnas and RedCrow, she has toured extensively in Australia and overseas, played at most folk and roots festivals and released four acclaimed albums.

Her new album, In The Forest of Things sees Sarah venture into complex, emotive paths with deeply personal songs that draw from her experiences, feelings and passions. Sarah anchors her music in the space where tradition and innovation intertwine [website].

Jumping Fences: In the lead-up to their forthcoming tour of Cuba, Jumping Fences maintain their unique fusion of Latin American and original songs. The song-writing partnership of Lachlan Hurse and Sue Monk join forces with Ross Gwyther on tenor sax and clarinet, and James Harper on percussion to create an innovative style. Their dynamic arrangements move easily between tenderness and energy and their lyrics weave the rich poetry of everyday life into broad social themes [website].

Entry is $10 and $7 (concession)

Cakes, savories, tea and coffee available.
