Event Description

Sparring Songwriters - Vancouver’s own Chris Ronald VS. John Wort Hannam based in Lethbridge, Alberta with John Ellis! Think dueling pianos - but featuring all original material. Songs will be traded (and some gentle barbs!) while John Ellis “referees” and accompanies both Chris and John - let the battle of the songs begin! All in good fun.

Chris Ronald is an international touring artist giving concerts ranging from solo to full band, though he often appears as a duo with John Ellis. Whatever the format, Chris always draws on his abilities as a highly skilled singer, storyteller and musician (guitar, harmonica, ukulele) to deliver a show that is captivating and unique.

In 2001 John Wort Hannam quit his teaching job and spent 10 months depleting his savings while sitting at his kitchen table. Twenty years later, the Alberta musician released eight full-length recordings and has a few feathers in that lucky hat. His latest release ‘Long Haul’ garnered him two Canadian Folk Music Awards in 2023 for Solo Artist of the Year and Contemporary Album of the Year.

John MacArthur Ellis is a Canadian award-winning producer and multi-Instrumentalist who’s known for capturing the hottest sounds in the Americana, Alt Country, Folk, Singer/Songwriter and Roots Rock genres.
