in Birnam & Dunkeld – Crossover Americana
Petunia and the Vipers defy convention!
They thrive on the challenge of adding Latin rhythms to a country blues tune, or gypsy flavouring to a rockabilly standard, not to mention multi-syllabic narratives that would leave a lesser singer tongue-tied and breathless…
The band has been barnstorming its way across the USA, picking up the kind of rave reviews that most would die for and, like the Pied Piper, they’ve amassed a huge following, all keen to dance to his tune.
Petunia so fits a traditional image of the ‘singin’ cowboy’, but he’s also been likened to someone who’s stepped out of a David Lynch movie.
A former independent film-maker, this restless romantic, a smooth country-crooner with punk attitude and a penchant for gun-fight ballads and yodelling, set out to make music instead!
Petunia and the Vipers music’ is madly infectious. When the band puts a foot to the floor, the show takes off with rocket boosters attached!
If you want to see a band taking the world by storm, don’t miss this one!!
