John Wort Hannam


Lethbridge, Alberta based roots musician John Wort Hannam quit his teaching job in 2001 and spent 10 months depleting his savings while sat at his kitchen table, wearing a lucky hat, writing his first ten songs. Today, with a few feathers in that lucky hat that include a JUNO nomination and a Canadian Folk Music Award for Best Album of the Year, his lyrically driven roots music has a renewed energy, fuelled by life experience, greater finesse on his instrument, and a deeper knowledge of the craft of songwriting.
