Roots & Blues Weekend: John Rutherford with John Wort Hannam

Friday, November 22 | Doors 7 pm, show 7:30 pm

John Rutherford is a singer/songwriter and bluesman based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. His work, laced with the tonality, phrasing and spirit of the blues, fuses a broad and eclectic range of influences creating a sound distinctly his own. A long association and a stint as a member of the house band during the blues heyday of Calgary’s now legendary King Edward Hotel provided John with the opportunity to meet, learn from and perform with many of the great blues legends of our time.

It’s a long, hard road – figuratively and literally – from a teaching job on southern Alberta’s Kainai First Nation to a Juno-nominated roots music career with performances at The Kennedy Centre, The Smithsonian, and Trafalgar Square, but John Wort Hannam wouldn’t trade the journey for the world.  From the Canadian prairies in southern Alberta comes one of Canada’s best western folk/roots songwriters. John is known for his unique take on the simple day-to-day dramas of common folk through songs that map the landscapes of both the human heart and this vast continent of ours.

2 day passes also available.
