According to their own website, "My Sweet Patootie is an acoustic roots group from rural Ontario that brings twinning vocal harmonies, monstrous fingerstyle guitar, sizzling fiddle, percussion and abundant charisma together in one perfect package. Their music is a tongue-in-cheek Canadian blend of old country, vintage jazz, western swing & blues."
I haven't seen the band but that sounds like a recipe for an upbeat evening of lively music, as shown in this YouTube video:
That's this Sunday 16 June at the Bothy Folk Club at the Park Golf Club, Park Road West, Southport, PR9 0JS. It begins at 8.00pm. The venue serves Thwaites real ale. You can buy on-line tickets here.
Too early for cautious optimism?
