KEN HAMM is a Western Canadian blues and roots music artist with an international reputation.  Emerging from early coffeehouses and Northern Ontario bluesbands, to festivals and concert halls, Ken has been playing professionally since the late 1960’s. He has a reputation as a dynamic, moving performer, mixing hot slide fingerstyle acoustic blues with original songs based on his travels and encounters.

Although Ken is as comfortable playing a house concert in your living room as playing on main stage, recent performances have included Edmonton Folk Festival, Calgary Folk Festival, Saskatoon Jazz Festival, and Vancouver Island Musicfest.

Recent reviewers of  LIVE 05, his latest release, have recognized Ken as a shining example of how talent and feeling can transcend time and region.”  In his music, “country, blues and folk merge into a pure roots style that is Hamm's own.” (See full review.)  This latest CD will be followed by a LIVE 05 DVD, to be released in 2007.

Ken has been a teacher of guitar playing most of his life, and includes a busy schedule of workshops and private lessons as he tours. Plans are afoot for a series of song-by-song instructional DVD’s to be released beginning in 2007 as well.

On top of all this, and after several decades on the west coast, Ken and his wife Heather have opened Village Music in southeastern Saskatchewan! Look for more news from near Moose Mountain soon...
