Petunia plays eclectic set of roots and psychedelic country

Vancouver folk/ country/ roots/ old time singer Petunia always equals a good time as he did, April 29 at the Slice, no matter what mix of musicians he has with him.

 As expected for a duo show, Petunia and the talented Nathan Godfrey performed a somewhat sedate show which showcased Godfrey’s bluesy slide guitar playing as well as Petunia’s more quirky side as well as kazoo playing.

Spookier, darker numbers sounded like they were being haunted by the angry spirit of Hank Williams as they incorporated a melting pot of styles including roots, country, folk, jazz and assorted weirdness.

They played original material and obscure covers including Jimmy Rogers’ “My Love” and some early psychedelic music.

 Petunia talked about the movie, the Musicianer he’ll be shooting in June.

There weren’t as many people as I expected, but a decent sized and, more importantly, attentive crowd listened and even danced for a few numbers before the duo took a set break.
