Ken Hamm is a well known acoustic solo musician based in Forget, SK. His playing is influenced by early blues recordings and a love of oldtimey music, resulting in a varied repertoire of original and traditional songs ranging from metalguitar driven hardedge blues workouts to softer dobro and banjo pieces. His main influences include Ry Cooder,  Mississippi John Hurt, John Fahey and John Hartford
Ken learned to play during the 1950,s, when guitar slingers like Elvis, Buddy Holly, and the Ventures prevailed. In the 60's, music went through coffeehouse folk and electric rock and clues phases, and Ken was swept up by these influences,playing in blues based bands in Thunder Bay like Tundra and the Bay St Blues Band, and eventually going acoustic with the release on vinyl of Ken Hamm and Friends in 1978.That LP led to a string of positive reviews and nominations in publications like Guitar Player magazine. A juno award in 1991 was followed by the Great Canadian Blues Award in 2010.Hamm has recorded 8 CDs to date, the most recent a double disc live collection released in 2006.
After some time in Calgary, and 25 years living in coastal BC,Ken moved to Forget,SK in 2007, and married his wife Heather there in 2009. For nine years they operated a small music store including teaching and instrument repairs
Currently Ken is back touring western Canada both solo and in combination with others such as Big Dave McLean.Guitar workshops are often included in touring plans
Another combination began when Heather PeatHamm released Blue Gramma,her first book of prairie poetry and drawings, and now they do some shows together.
Ken is also currently involved in producing and recording projects close to home,including an upcoming new solo release slated for 2017
