The John Wort Hannam Trio will perform at Centre 64 on November 24. at 8 p.m. This popular group will be hosted by Live @ Centre 64 and sponsored the Overtime Beer Works .

John Wort Hannam was a public school teacher of language arts , spending several years as an educator on Canada’s aboriginal reserves. When that phase of his life ended, he picked up a guitar and wondered if folk music might be his next career.

Inspired by quirky tunes of Louden Wainwright lll , the Alberta based Hannam sat at his kitchen table for most of the next year, depleting his savings but happily ending up with 10 songs that became his first album, Pocket Full of Holes.

Two decades later Hannam has released eight CDs, won a number of awards- including Album of the Year from the Canada Folk Music Awards. He has toured the international festival circuit from the Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington, DC to Great Britain and Australia.

Hannam is a natural-born storyteller with an expressive voice and sophisticated guitar skills. This old- school prairie bard is interested in everything from the simple joys evoked by a well-built Martin guitar to deeper concerns family responsibilities and life in a small town.

A great way to spend a cold November evening with some friends at Centre 64.
