About The Event
An intimate evening of live music and art taking place in the gallery at Wildwood featuring Nigel Wearne. Nigel Wearne is an Australian singer-songwriter, luthier, poet and gleaner. Equipped with personally handcrafted instruments, he melds finger-style 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. For Nigel, music is a candid, human and important messenger for stories and moments in time. His 2012 album, 'Black Crow' garnered wide critical acclaim including a 4 star review in Rolling Stone Magazine and a nomination for Best Country Album at The Age Music Victoria Awards. Wearne’s current album ‘Drawing Circles’ is a solo record that’s raw, compelling and reflective. A storyteller at heart, he paints lyrical pictures “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 Magazine.
