John Wort Hannam
Brambles And Thorns

John Wort Hannam - Brambles And Thorns

From the prairies in Southern Alberta comes one of Canada's best folk/roots songwriters, John Wort Hannam. In just a few short years, John has claimed the Canadian Folk Music Awards' 2010 Contemporary Album of the Year, a 2010 Juno Award Nominee for Roots and Traditional Album of the Year, and has enjoyed a main stage performance at the 2009 Kerrville Folk Festival, plus numerous other prizes and accolades.

With comparisons to Gordon Lightfoot, James Keelaghan, and John Prine, John Wort Hannam is a born storyteller with a keen eye for the quirky and lyrics that create stories behind the songs. Brambles And Thorns is his fifth full length album, and his first for Borealis.
