If ever there was a dream meant-to-be pairing it was when colourful Vipers frontman Petunia hooked up with renowned American old-time picker Nathan Godfrey.
Described by reviewers as “the real deal,” the pair mine for nuggets from the US roots music back catalogue and present them as well-burnished golden treasures.
Expect to hear echoes of Hank Williams, Lefty Frizell, Jimmie Rodgers and Riley Puckett as well as originals which will be familiar to fans of The Vipers’ shows.
Whenever Petunia takes the stage for a solo spotlight, it is powerfully impressive. His multi-talented side-kick, who joins him on vocals and resonator guitar, mandolin or banjo, is recognised as one of Canada’s leading old-time performers and also hosts his own radio show.
They have toured extensively on the Canadian circuit in this superb duo format to become recognised as one of the truly great ‘live’ experiences.
