Tip Your Hat to Nigel Wearne

Are you in need of a good dose of country/folk, western swing and hillbilly rock ’n’ roll? That is the question that awaits you on the official page of songman Nigel Wearne. Equipped with an arsenal of personally handcrafted guitars, Nigel’s storytelling tunes play out over finger-style guitar, country twang and honky-tonk. Referring to his website once again, Nigel is a festival favourite, having played at Port Fairy Folk Festival, Queenscliff Music Festival, Tablelands Folk Festival and the Dorrigo Folk & Bluegrass Festival among many others. His most recent release is 2012’s Black Crow, which scored itself a four-star review in Rolling Stone Magazine. For songs as varied as mischievous bank robbers, wandering poets and a love of eggs, Nigel is your man. The Loft, Warrnambool – September 19.
