When listening to queer freak folk duo Sweet Petunia for the first time, many are blown away by the interchanging vocal lines of Madison Simpson & Mairead Guy. Unbelievably, the two are not related, though their voices are almost indistinguishable from each other. These brother harmonies lead Sweet Petunia through many shifting genres, melding traditional folk and country sensibilities with a distinct punk flare. Established in Boston in 2018, the pair have spent the last three years cultivating their sound and playing over one hundred shows.
