This home concert is put together by Home Routes out of Winnipeg. Georgetown’s Frank and Ruth Loreto have been hosting Home Routes concerts ( at 3 Torino Gate) for 5 plus years and have yet to be disappointed by any of the shows.
The cost for the evening is $20 per person, with the full amount going to the performers. They need to know in advance who is coming as they can only hold 25 people comfortably and they must know how many break-time delights to prepare in advance. Now is not too soon to book this or other upcoming shows in the Loreto Home Routes Concert Series. To reserve a spot, contact Frank at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bring whatever you would like to drink or you can indulge in the delicious coffees provided by Stephen at Speakeasy’s in Hamiton. AND, you can have that coffee delivered to your door like they do—just go to http://speakeasycoffee.vstore.ca

Montreal’s “Sin and Swoon” is made up of Ottawa Valley native Michael James O’Brien and Antigonish, Nova Scotia’s Michelle Tompkins. They love George and Tammy, Old Time Country, and the harmony singing of the Louvin Brothers and the Delmore Brothers. Recently featured on “The Vinyl Cafe with Stuart Maclean” on CBC radio and NPR, their new album is now available!
As singer-songwriters Mike and Michelle have been performing together for the last few years, after the couple’s post-dinner-table-song-swaps led to the odd pub gig to help make ends meet. Songs were written, and the culmination of the last couple years of work has led to the release of their first record “Did I Turn The Oven Off?”
Both have been busy as backup singers/musicians on the Montreal local scene, lending a hand to such notables as Patrick Watson, The Barr Brothers, Plants and Animals, Blood and Glass, Katie Moore, and Thus:Owls. Mike O’Brien was also a guitar player on the last two Vic Chesnutt tours.
