A self-described “rock-a-hillbilly yodeling Country Blues Boy” Petunia (of Petunia and the Vipers) performs his unique brand of country live from The Mercury Room. Petunia’s forthcoming solo album, 'Free as the Wind', will be released this fall. But tonight, you’ll have your chance to hear these brand-new songs performed live for an Edmonton audience. Petunia draws on a wide range of musical influences – Jimmie Rodgers to David Bowie; Hank Williams to Dead Kennedys – and seamlessly weaves them together to create a country-punk blend that will hook you.

Setlist:
Ready to Go
Cricket Song
Yes Baby Yes
Primative Love
California Blues
Loved in Vain
Forgotten Melody
Inside of You
I Hate A Man Like You (Jelly Roll Morton cover by Nathan Godfrey)
Bicycle Song
Death Himself

Leaving home to find yourself. Finding the resolve to end a marriage to find happiness. These are just a few of the stories Alex Vissia explores in her songs. The Edmonton singer-songwriter began her career in music at age 11. That’s when Vissia and her sisters joined a choir in their hometown of Stony Plain, Alberta. From their modest start playing to seniors homes, The Vissia Sisters when on to play bluesgrass, country and folk songs to audiences at the Edmonton Folk Music Festival.

The sisters called in quits in 2011, and Alex went solo. Tonight you’ll hear songs for her latest album, Modern Love, along with a few tunes she’s been working on for her next album.

Set list:
Goodnight, Moonlight
Macondo
Mountaineer
Make Her Stay
You Should Be Sleeping
Don't Tell Me Riddles
Young Love
I Wanted
Wild Fig Tree
