The Sweeties – Official Website

SHOWCASING: FRIDAY OCT 4 – MINER’S DAUGHTER 11PM / SATURDAY OCT 5 – TOWN & MOUNTAIN 10:15PM

The Sweeties band is made up of a pair of real-life sweeties – Patrick Hamilton and Fiona McTaggart, who live together in Whitehorse, Yukon. Together their joint love for traditional old time and bluegrass music, coupled with an insatiable desire for good rock and roll, comes together in The Sweeties like the perfect storm. Nearly all the songs in The Sweeties’ repertoire are written more than a hundred years ago, as they regularly mine from the American Sacred Harp songbook, country parlour hits, and chart-topping songs from the 90’s – the 1890s, that is.
The Sweeties bring the doom, the gloom, and the drama, as they blend these old songs with the heavy guitar riffs, guttural drums, and outrageous outfits of 1970’s heavy rock. Their unique “Sacred Doom” style will first turn your head and then your feet as they draw you into their cacophonous Black Sabbath square dance. If The Sweeties’ music alone will steal your heart, their live show will make your great-grandfather turn over in his grave as The Sweeties simultaneously resurrect the eerie and uplifting harmonies of the past and awaken an earth-pounding sensation of rock and roll that will have you wishing the show would never end.
