*Its Canada’s Sesquicentennial….and it’s time to sing it out! There's been a rumor goin'; round that John Spearn has a maple leaf-shaped heart...and it’s not too hard to figure out why. His silky-voiced, guitar-scorchin', Canadiana ballads can knock the socks off of anybody who has taken our country's roots lightly. We’ve got countless stories that need to be told, tributes that are long overdue, lost loves and adventures, outlaws, legends, truth, fables, unsung heroes… and good laughs... and he's on them with a
vengeance! He has been performing at festivals on the shores of all three oceans, and countless places in-between. Come check out this nationally-acclaimed, multiple award-nominated songsmith...and hear for yourself. And yah, eh… maple leaf-shaped Goosebumps are guaranteed…
