John Wort Hannam
Canadian singer songwriter, and all round nice guy, is touring the UK with fiddler Scott Duncan in May/June 2023
In 2001, roots/folk musician John Wort Hannam quit his teaching job and spent 10 months depleting his savings while sat at his kitchen table, wearing a lucky hat, writing his first ten songs. Eighteen years later, he has a few feathers in that lucky hat including a JUNO nomination and a Canadian Folk Music Award for Best Album of the Year, a CBC Galaxie Rising Star Award, a Kerrville Texas New Folk win, and numerous Western Canadian Music Award and Canadian Folk Music Award nominations.
Born on the island of Jersey, John emigrated to Canada with his parents when he was just eight years old. Recent years have seen a great deal of change in John’s life - becoming a Dad, turning 50, a move to the “big city” of Lethbridge.
