In a Nutshell
(or 100 words)

My Sweet Patootie embraces the fun that makes live music so intoxicating. With a sly wink and a grin, they draw you into a world of carnival barkers and nostalgic romantics; making you feel like you're a part of it all. Shades of vintage swing, country blues, folk, and ragtime collide in an uplifting show performed with tight vocal harmonies, instrumental virtuosity, and humorous storytelling. It's a unique musical experience that transcends the borders of the acoustic-roots genre, promising to entertain music lovers of all kinds.

This dynamic trio features Canadian Folk Music Award winners Sandra Swannell on vocals and swing fiddle and singer-guitarist Terry Young who's flashy fingerpicking functions simultaneously as the group’s guitar and bass. Backed by zany junkyard percussionist and singer Paul Clifford (in North America) and drummer John Jackson (in the UK).
