Welcome to the homepage of Foco Nuevo, the performance project
of Jumping Fences, where we have adapted the Latin American peña into our own informal concert held on the First Friday of every month.

Our home base is Kurilpa Hall at 174 Boundary Street West End.

3 November, 2017 8.00 p.m.

Our guests this month are Jo Davie and 3 Miles from Texas. Don't miss another night of great live music.

Jo Davie Having just completed her Honours degree at the Queensland Conservatorium, local singer-songwriter Jo Davie is already making her mark. Whatever the musical setting, Jo sings with heartfelt simplicity, versatile technical skill and an intriguing talent for genuine story-telling. Jo's delicately crafted music is moving from strength to strength. She was recently awarded the Lord Mayor's City Hall Concert Award for her compelling performance in the Brisbane City Council's QUBE Effect, together with selling out her debut full-band show in August.

3 Miles From Texas is a Brisbane based acoustic/electric group playing and recording their own songs. Their style is an eclectic mix drawn from the roots of popular and traditional music with a distinct and individual sound. Within the group's songs you'll find influences from the blues, folk, soul, country, even a touch of the Caribbean.

This month, the band will perform as a 4 piece. Rob, Tony, Greg and Keith will play some of their new songs from their forthcoming release. Expect more on that very soon...meantime...looking forward to seeing our friends and playing for you all at the wonderful Foco Nuevo ...happy trails... [website]

Jumping Fences: the song-writing partnership of Lachlan Hurse and Sue Monk join forces with Ross Gwyther, James Harper and Robbie Stewart to create an innovative style inspired by a long association with Latin American singer-songwriters. Dynamic arrangements move easily between tenderness and energy and their lyrics take the rich poetry of everyday life into bigger social themes, creating strong points of connection for their audiences.
