Ontario’s My Sweet Patootie will be performing in Mission on Oct. 23.

My Sweet Patootie coming to Mission

Upcoming show is part of the Home Routes concert series

The second Home Routes concert takes place on Tuesday, Oct. 23 at 7 p.m.

My Sweet Patootie, from rural Ontario, will be playing at a special location because the Mission Arts Centre, which usually hosts the shows, will be transformed into a Haunted House for Halloween.

My Sweet Patootie is an acoustic roots group that brings vocal harmonies, sizzling fiddle, and an abundant of charisma together. The music is a tongue-in-cheek Canadian blend of old country, western swings, blues and vintage jazz.

Terry Young and Sandra Swannell formed the band when Tanglefoot, another group they were both a part of, disbanded in 2009.

Swannell began playing the violin even before she started school. She is classically trained, but has a diverse musical background. Young loved to sing when he was a child and is a classically trained tenor. He picked up a guitar in high school and now has the reputation as a talented multi-instrumentalist, also playing the mandolin and banjo.

Earlier this year, percussionist-trumpet player Bradford Nowak joined the duo to complete the band.

Tickets to the Oct. 23 show are $20 and available by calling 604-826-0029. The show starts at 7 p.m. and there will be limited seating. The concert is being hosted by Mission Arts Council president Ania Kyte.

The Home Routes house concert circuits are made up of 12 houses which the artist tours in 14 days. Each house concert host presents six shows over the course of a year, which runs September to April with a two month break at Christmas and New Years.

Other shows coming up in Mission are Carrie Elkin (Nov. 21), Kim Dunn (Feb. 7), Jess Reimer (March 8), and Silk Road (April 6).
