Australian singer-songwriter Nigel Wearne crosses the ditch this August for his first tour of New Zealand. Spanning Auckland in the north to Invercargill in the south, he’ll spend 2 weeks on the road touring his current album Drawing Circles. 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. 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

2017 New Zealand Gold Guitar winner, Jenny Mitchell is one of the country’s brightest rising talents. Hailing from Gore, she’s a songwriter who blends country, folk, and Americana into her own captivating style. Her earliest musical influences were Johnny Cash, The Dixie Chicks, Hank Williams – & a few of her Dad’s other favourites. Her original music is now influenced by a wide variety of music from the likes of Gillian Welch, The Lumineers, Miranda Lambert & Norah Jones. In 2016 Jenny was the Overall Intermediate NZ Gold Guitar Winner and winner of the 2016 MLT Songwriting Awards – goals she has been working towards for a long time. But years before this (when she was only 14) she was placed 3rd on New Zealand’s Got Talent. She then went on to release her debut album, ‘The Old Oak’, that debuted at number 1 on the NZ Country iTunes Charts and number 3 on the Official NZ Music Charts. Her unique style has delighted audiences of all shapes & sizes, from the thousands at the Tamworth Country Music Festival to intimate house concerts in her home region, Southland. www.jennymitchell.co.nz
