Foco Nuevo is the regular informal folk concert organised by Jumping Fences, the songwriting/performing partnership of Sue Monk and Lachlan Hurse. It features performances by guest musicians and Jumping Fences with their unique mix of original and Latin American songs. Maggie's delicious cakes, Elena's Chilean emapanadas (pies), as well as tea, and coffee are on sale. The name Foco Nuevo refers to Brisbanes FOCO Club, a lively and alternative performance space which ran on a weekly basis during the late 1960s. The mix of music and social issues has given a particular character to Brisbane music over several decades, and has never been far from the inspiration behind the song writing of Jumping Fences. Their original work and the influence of their long association with Latin American music have given them a unique profile in Brisbane. Foco Nuevo is a performing space that draws on the approach of the Latin American 'penya', and places it in the Australian context, with a diversity of guest performers and a focus on original material.
