John Wort Hannam

In 2001 John Wort Hannam 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. Those songs would become his first recording – Pocket Full Of Holes – released in 2003.

Nineteen years later, the Alberta musician has released eight full-length recordings and has a few feathers in that lucky hat for his offerings. Feathers that include a JUNO nomination, a Canadian Folk Music Award for Best Album of the Year, a CBC Galaxie Rising Star Award, a Kerrville Texas New Folk win, and numerous Western Canadian Music Award and Canadian Folk Music Award nominations.

Time brings change, and John has emerged a better songwriter, a better singer, and a better player. The lyrical style has been refined and John Wort Hannam has landed squarely on his niche in the folk-roots world. He’s spent years learning the craft of song-writing and is taking those tools to write some of his most personal songs.

He has, literally, found his voice and we are the better for that.

Lynne Hanson

Too tough for folk and too blues-influenced for country, Lynne Hanson’s brand of porch music with a little red dirt can turn on a dime from a sunshine, blue sky ballad to a full on thunderstorm of gritty Americana swamp from one song to the next. Her hard living music has garnered her the nickname “Canada’s Queen of Americana.” And while her deep, bluesy croon has drawn comparisons to Lucinda Williams and Gillian Welch, it’s the poetry of her lyrics that really sets her apart.

“An uncommon ability to interpret the roots of American sound by combining sensual blues with delicious country-folk numbers.” Lonestar Time

John Reischman & The Jaybirds

Like the powerful mandolinist and composer at its helm, John Reischman and the Jaybirds fashion a stylish take on bluegrass that seamlessly blends original songs and instrumentals with Appalachian old-time music for a truly unique band sound. Now in their 20th year, with seven acclaimed albums and two Juno nominations, the Jaybirds are simultaneously innovative and unadorned, sophisticated and stripped-down, happily old-fashioned and 21st-century contemporary.

“Aces in writing, instrumental and vocal departments… a true collaborative effort from this West Coast amalgamation of Canadian and American bluegrass musicians, and worthy of repeated listenings and then some.” — Peter North, The Edmonton Journal

The Red Hot Hayseeds

Hailing from Calgary, Red Hot Hayseeds specialize in western/hot swing music of the 20’s-50’s, blending timeless classics with exciting originals that bring you back to the golden ages of western music.  They have been making waves in the Calgary & surrounding area since the release of their debut self titled EP in September of 2020 which climbed to the #1 spot on the CJSW charts and ranked within the top 10 across national folk charts.
