My Sweet Patootie is contemporary roots and ragtime at its best; bringing tight harmonies, monstrous guitar, sizzling fiddle and percussion together in one perfect package. Founded in 2007 by Canadian Folk Music Award winners Sandra Swannell and Terry Young, the trio has a growing international reputation.

Throw in a penchant for light-hearted satire and their love of artists like Patsy Cline and Hank Williams, and you get a show that has been described as two parts exemplary musicianship and one part vaudeville comedy.
