John Wort Hannam is hitting the ground of 2019 running with a seven-show, eight-day run across the Prairies. Hannam comes to Medicine Hat on Sunday, playing at Ye Olde Jar Bar at 7:30 p.m.

The past few years have been filled with highs and lows for the southern Alberta folk and roots singer-songwriter. Becoming a dad and the September release of his seventh album “Acres of Elbow Room” rank as highs. A long, deep bout of depression and losing his singing voice rank as lows. On his website Hannam says he emerged “as a better songwriter, a better singer and a better player.”

As for “Acres of Elbow Room” Hannam calls them “by far my favourite of all I’ve written.”
