I’m lucky enough to be listening to folk/country singer-songwriter Nigel Wearne’s album Drawing Circles before its release next month. Spoiler alert: it’s incredibly good, and I don’t want to wait until November to talk about it. So in lieu of the full review – which will appear later – here’s a link to the single, ‘Autumn Tempest’, so you can listen on Soundcloud.

Nigel is doing a tour that’s mainly private house concerts, but Queenslanders can go to one of two upcoming public shows:

18th Oct: The Bug – Brisbane Unplugged Folk/Acoustic Music Night, Brisbane QLD www.brisbaneunpluggedgigs.org

21st – 23rd Oct: Tablelands Folk Festival, Yungaburra QLD www.tablelandsfolkfestival.org
