Petunia (Vern Lockhart) is a man exuding both enormous musical talent and other-worldly mystery, a bona fide country music treasure seemingly of another time. One critic attempting to describe him painted this picture: “Imagine that David Lynch and Nick Cave had a hillbilly baby – a hillbilly baby that yodeled.” Hailing from Quebec and now based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Petunia’s remarkable music career began with him busking his way across Canada and into the NYC subway system. It later evolved into him performing in over 150 shows a year to enthralled audiences here and abroad. He’s racked up numerous accolades for his celebrated releases, both solo and with his fearsome band of musicians, The Vipers. Their current tour has them roaring across the continent in support of their latest album Lonesome Heavy and Lonesome.
