Road to FolkFest Concerts presents JOHN WORT HANNAM
The Sun Parlour Folk Music Society Road to FolkFest Concerts presents JOHN WORT HANNAM

It's a long, hard road  figuratively and literally  from a teaching job on a southern Alberta First Nation's reserve to a Juno-nominated roots music career with performances at The Kennedy Centre, The Smithsonian, and Trafalgar Square, but he wouldn't trade the journey for the world.

Born in Jersey, Channel Islands and raised in Southern Alberta, John earned degrees
in Native American Studies and Native Education and taught Grade Nine on reserves
for five years. He decided he wanted to pursue a career in music after hearing
Loudon Wainwright III in 1997.

Now a prize-winning songwriter and performer touring internationally, John Wort Hannam is known for his unique take on the simple day-to-day dramas of common folk through songs that map the landscapes of both the human heart and this vast country of ours.
With a keen eye for the quirky and lyrics that create stories behind the songs, this born storyteller shares the personal and the profound. Thriving on live performance, John Wort Hannam is truly happy when he is on the road playing and connecting personally with an audience.

He won the prestigious Kerrville New Folk Award in 2007. Hes been nominated for
three Western Canadian Music Awards, a North American Folk Alliance Award, and
three Canadian Folk Music Awards  winning in 2010 for Contemporary Album of
the Year. He also earned a 2010 Juno nod for Roots and Traditional Album of the
Year  Solo, and he has three times won the Grand Prize in the Calgary Folk Festival
Song Competition.

"Songs that speak of Canada with the eloquence of a Sinclair Ross, a W.O. Mitchell, a Margaret Laurence or a Sharon Butala." therecord.com
"People are starting to sit up and notice this singer-songwriter in his appearances from Montreal to Australia." Edmonton Folk Festival
"Like Tom Russell, Hannams narrative, achingly resilient writing approach hooks the listener immediately. The real deal."  Shindig UK
