Nigel Wearne for festival
FESTIVAL WIKILEAK #47…Nigel Wearne is a young alt country singer songwriter from Melbourne…coming to the festival….gorgeous tunes and voice and a dapper hand at making his own guitars as well…he might even show us a bit at workshop..
Nigel Wearne is an alt-country/folk singer-songwriter whose music has an intimate and poignant narrative. Equipped with personally handcrafted guitars, his music melds finger-style guitar, slide dobro, country twang and honest storytelling. Nigel’s influences include Bob Dylan, Townes Van Zandt, Tom Waits, Gillian Welch and the spirit of Woody Guthrie. With frayed poetic edges and honest grit, Nigel delivers dynamic and inspired performances that will rattle your emotions. Nigel’s current album ‘Sweetest Delusion’ is an entirely acoustic affair – ‘the kind of music that really speaks and it would be a shame not to listen’ ~ Forte Magazine ~
