Souris Live Inc. is gearing up for another concert in its "Souris by the Sea" Summer Music Series on Sunday, Aug. 26, featuring Mark Haines from Fortune, P.E.I., and Tom Leighton from Toronto, at the newly renovated Souris Legion.

Haines and Leighton established themselves as a duo in 1992 with the release of their first CD, “Foot To Floor (repeat on beat)”. They perform an original and traditional repertoire influenced by their Celtic and North American folk roots.

Their engaging humour and personality has made them popular performers in theatres, festivals, concerts and clubs. These recording artists have rambled along Canadian highways from Ontario to the Maritimes, into the mountains of New York and across the seas to Britain, Sweden and Taiwan.

With Haines’ one-of-a-kind voice and Leighton’s harmony and arranging skills, the stories and images come vividly to life in their shows that also feature sounds of the fiddle, accordion and guitar.

The doors for this show will open at 7 p.m. with show time at 7:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased in advance at the Souris Legion (56 Main St., Souris) or online at www.eventbrite.com . For more information, call 902-215-0318.
