John Wort Hannam is a Canadian singer songwriter from Fort Macleod, Alberta.
Born in the Channel Islands and raised in Alberta, John earned a degree in Native American Studies and taught on a reserve for five years.
Since leaving his teaching post for music in 2002 he’s been nominated for a Juno, three Western Canadian Music Awards, a North American Folk Alliance Award, and three Canadian Folk Music Awards – winning Contemporary Album of the Year in 2010.
John is well known for his story telling through music. Themes which are central to his music include life in Western Canada, and the human experience as seen through the eyes of simple working folk.

In addition to singing, John plays guitar, tenor guitar and harmonica.
