Shawn Hlookoff, AKA, Shawn Hook is heading back to his own stomping grounds.

During the stop at home in the South Slocan, the recording artist will play a quick gig in front of students at Hume Elementary Friday at 1 p.m.

“He is a great guy, and so super to come here to do this,” said Hume teacher Lisa Backus.

“(Shawn) has two music videos/songs on the Canadian top 10 Every Red Light‘ and So CLose,” Backus adds.

The last time Hook returned back home was in June to perform at his Alma Mater, Mount Sentinel High School, as a request from his former music teacher Rick Lingard.

Hook has opened for Heart, Beach Boys, REO Speedwagon and Chilliwack.

He was part of show celebrating B.C.’s 150th birthday at the Parliament buildings in Victoria, following legendary songstress Sarah Mclachlan, and even appeared on the Fox Network television show, Bones, playing a killer — ironically, Hook knocked off a piano player before being caught by the good guys.

The keyboard and guitar player also has written music for several shows at ABC.

He also owns a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records for balancing on a ball — Hook managed to stand on a exercise ball for 3 hours, 16 minutes for those people needing to pursue a goal in life.
