Nigel Wearne Live
January 27 @ 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Equipped with personally handcrafted guitars, Nigel Wearne melds fingerstyle guitar, clawhammer banjo, folk and honest storytelling. Gleaning diverse influence from Kelly Joe Phelps, Townes Van Zandt and Sun Kil Moon, he tells stories of forgotten rebels, wandering poets and his love of eggs. Wearne’s current album Drawing Circles is a solo record that’s raw, compelling and reflective. With songs born of shadows and lucid reveries, the 14-song double album explores the dark corners of creativity and the irregular swells of life. A storyteller at heart, he paints lyrical pictures with frayed poetic edges and “the narrative-fuelled prose of Paul Kelly” – Beat Magazine. “One of Australia’s emerging songwriters” – Tone Deaf. “Warmth flecked with grit… beauty awaits” 4 Stars – Rolling Stone Australia. www.nigelwearne.com
