Luna Junction

An eclectic extravaganza of Folk. WORLD. Jungle. JAZZ. Pop. CELTIC. Soul…

Luna Junction’s playful live show was handcrafted over a decade ago in West End cafes, bars and marketplaces by Shani Forrester and an ever-evolving troupe of players. Hailing from Northern NSW, the latest line-up are excited to venture back to where it all began!

Humble and joyous with undertones of nonsense, this dynamic musical troupe playfully juggle genres, instruments and influences to weave a colourful tapestry of traditional and original music — incorporating brass, flutes, guitars, double bass and percussion. [Website]


Jumping Fences

Jumping Fences’ songs traverse working lives, migration and exile, and everyday hopes and joys. Their long association with Latin American music resonates deeply in their own compositions. They toured internationally to Cuba in 2017 and 2018, and nationally they have performed at numerous festivals and venues in South-East Queensland and Victoria. They have composed songs for choirs and conducted workplace songwriting and performance projects in association with the Qld Council of Unions. They have released five recordings, most recently ‘Satellites’. [website]
