John Wort Hannam


“You’re dead a long time” says John Wort Hannam’s mantra, “so you better get out there and play.” John Wort Hannam’s "winsome, lonesome, and then some" style of acoustic roots music is a fusion of lyrically driven songs and soaring melodies. His lyrics reveal a woven textile of metaphor, phrasing, irony, and rhyme that reads with ease like well-written prose. John is one of the new torch-bearers of a vast songwriting tradition in the styles of John Prine, Loudon Wainwright III, and Steve Earle. With a stage presence made up of a cutting sense of humour, a pinch of cynicism, and a genuine graciousness at being invited to perform, John Wort Hannam is sure to satisfy the roots music ache in your belly. John has released five albums and captured a host of awards in Canada, and it's time to let the secret out.
