John Spearn (var. Spearin) is Canadianafolkrootsceltic. You’ll instantly catch these deep influences threaded through John’s fine vocals, lyrics, and rootsy, guitar-mastered songwriting works. His grant-supported Canada Songs and Northern Sightlines CDs have taken him from sea to sea to sea as a major festival performer, workshop host, and historical curriculum author. His Canada Songs Project has received several award nominations. This is pure Canadiana: forgotten but deserving heroes, the humility in our international image, and a superb range of tender ballads through to raw, foot-stompin’ stories that need to be told. A brand new third CD, Lonely Heroes (five years in the making), is now available. Please check Canadian Folk Music Magazine (Autumn 2007), MySpace and YouTube for features.
