Nigel Wearne Live in the Hunt House Listening Room
We are excited to welcome back this wandering Aussie to the Hunt House. Nigel has been touring all over Australia, the UK, and the US landing back here on Friday, Sept 15th.
Those who came out last time all asked when he is coming back – this is a one-of-a-kind performer and storyteller.
Nigel Wearne saunters after dark in the music of the night, blending blues, folk, and Americana-noir. Hailing from Gunditjmara country in the deep south of Australia, he’s a guitarist and multi-instrumentalist with diverse influences such as Nick Cave, Tom Waits, and Gillian Welch. A deep thinker and truth seeker with a penchant for all things peculiar, he sings of human frailty, grace, and the cosmos; songwriting that cuts to the bone.
Nigel has toured Australia, New Zealand, the UK, and Canada and he’s performed at a long list of music festivals, including the Port Fairy Folk Festival, Adelaide Guitar Festival, and Queenscliff Music Festival.
His sophomore album, Black Crow garnered wide critical acclaim including a 4-star review in Rolling Stone, a nomination for Best Country Album at the Music Victoria Awards, and debuted at #1 on the AMRAP Charts. Singer-songwriter, luthier, poet, and gleaner; Wearne paints lyrical pictures with “the narrative-fuelled prose of Paul Kelly” – BEAT MAGAZINE. “An eruption of energy, rhythm and melody” – RHYTHMS MAGAZINE.“Poignant and mysterious” – MAVERICK MAGAZINE UK.
