JOHN WORT HANNAM
His Grade 6 report card states: “John has the potential to be an excellent student but must fight the urge to make a joke out of absolutely everything.”
Today John’s mantra states, "You’re dead a long time, so you better get out there and make something beautiful.”
Perhaps it’s the growing list of accolades, which these days include a Juno nomination, a Canadian Folk Music Award, a Galaxie Rising Star Award and a Kerrville New Folk title, or perhaps it’s the lofty comparisons reviewers have made to Tom Russell, W.O. Mitchell and Margaret Laurence.
Whatever it is, Lethbridge, AB based, folk--roots musician, John Wort Hannam is making music with a new-found confidence these days.
15 years into his career and he is far and away writing his best material yet.
John has released 6 recordings in 13 years with performance highlights that include a win at the Kerrville, Texas New Folk Song Competition, collaborating with the Calgary Philharmonic, composing the 50th Anniversary song for his alma mater, University of Lethbridge, composing the 2012 Alberta Winter Games official song and playing the 2012 Olympic Summer Games.
