John Wort Hannam has a new sound, a new band, a new confidence, and a ton of new songs. And it’s coming across loud and clear in his live show. With his firecracker band - Jason Valleau on upright bass, Jon May on drums, and Stephen Fletcher on keys - John is making waves in a new soundscape. In 2001, John 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.  Seventeen years later, with a few feathers in that lucky hat that include a JUNO nomination and a Canadian Folk Music Award for Best Album of the Year, he’s touring a new five piece band and his seventh full-length recording Acres Of Elbow Room.
