Alberta Songsters Bluebird
The Kelowna Folk Club is very excited to be bringing in such
an exciting show as their season opener.
John Wort Hannam and Leeroy Stagger are touring a double
bill solo show in BC this fall as they make their way out to
perform at Bluebird North in Vancouver. Both are touring
brand new records.
Leeroy Stagger is a Canadian alternative country singer-songwriter
and a Western Canadian Music Award Nominee for Roots
Solo Recording of the Year. Raised in rural British Columbia,
Stagger has garnered an international fan base through relentless
touring both home and abroad. Leeroy's songs have been placed
in TV shows Greys Anatomy, Sons of Anarchy, Degrassi,
and Heartland. Releasing ten albums in ten years Stagger
is already well on his way to joining the likes of John Hiatt,
Ryan Adams and John Prine as an ambassador for North American
roots rock n roll.
John Wort Hannam is a Juno Nominee and a Canadian
Folk Music Award Winner who writes and sings lyrically driven acoustic
roots music in a style somewhere between contemporary and traditional.
One reviewer said. "Johns songs are woven
textiles of metaphor, phrasing, irony, and rhyme that read with
ease like well-written prose."
Another said, "Like Tom Russell, Hannams narrative,
achingly resilient writing approach hooks the listener immediately.
The real deal." But Sing Out! magazine really
summed up John's writing style when they wrote "Hannam
makes the world personal instead of his personal life the world."
This is likely
to be a sellout so get your tickets early and you wont
