Steveston Folk Guild welcomes Petunia
The Steveston Folk Guild welcomes the folk musician known as Petunia to Britannia Heritage Shipyard Oct. 20.
Fresh from a recent tour in Europe, Petunia averages 150 shows each year across Canada, and he and his band began touring the United States last spring. The musician performs a mix of country and western standards, old-style Quebec country and western, and, according to the folk guild's Dave McArthur, has shades of Hank Snow and Hank Williams.
Also appearing at the folk guild show is Jimmy Roy, who will accompany Petunia on lap steel guitar.
Tickets, $8, at the door. Children under 12 are free. Show time is 7:30 p.m. in the shipyard's Chinese Bunkhouse, 5180 Westwater Dr.
