Returning for his second BAG appearance, Petunia appears at Mick Murphy's, Ballymore Eustace, Co. Kildare on Monday, September 14, 2015. Doors open: 8:30pm; Gig 9pm sharp. Admission: €12 at the door.
Petunia’s music is infectious, his singing ranges from the most delicate you’ve ever heard to the most powerful, often within a single song…hillbilly-flavoured-swing inflected-ragtime-goodtime-thunderously rolling-one-of-a-kind-you-don’t-want-to-miss-this-sort-of-a-show.
He has a huge repertoire of music to draw from but fans continue to cry out for the Petunia originals; Whenever Petunia takes the stage for a solo spotlight, it is always powerfully impressive.
Joining Petunia on the night will be Ed Tapceanu on the upright bass. Ed Tapceanu has been a permanent member of the National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland, playing double bass, since 2006.
He has held permanent positions in several European orchestras: Royal Philharmonic of Flanders, Antwerp, Belgium; Stadtorchester Wintethur, Switzerland.
He's also active playing double bass, electric bass & baritone guitar in anything from old blues & jazz, rockabilly, soul and alternative rock & pop.
Also joining Petunia will be Candice Roberts on harmony vocals, and shadow puppeteering!
