Petunia and the Vipers
Blueshore Financial Centre for the Performing Arts Capilano University
Time 8:00 pm
Petunia defies convention. Hillbilly flavoured, swing inflected, rockabilly ragtime with a slice of country blues, Latin rhythms and gypsy spice for good measure. His style is unique and surreal and his live performances have been likened to an avant-country nightclub scene straight out of a David Lynch movie. His honest, cut to the heart songwriting and multi-syllabic narratives would leave a lesser singer tongue-tied and breathless. A modern Johnny Cash, Petunia seemingly walks out of the ‘50s and onto the modern stage with a bold and entirely intoxicating voice that will blow you away. You simply need to hear him for yourself.
