Sweet Petunia

7 Griggs Terrace | 1:00 – 2:00 PM

Sweet Petunia, composed of musicians Mairead Guy and Madison Simpson, is a harmony driven, Folk-Americana duo from Boston, Massachusetts. They use their powerful lyricism to bring love, advocacy, and the roots tradition to the college DIY scene, urging everyone around them, regardless of race, sexuality, ability, or gender identity, that they deserve happiness and empowerment. Established in the summer of 2018, they have gone on to perform up and down the Eastern seaboard, mesmerizing crowds with their ability to silence a room at the turn of a voice and a word. Some highlights of their past three years are performances as a part of the Berklee American Roots Program at Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival (2019) and FreshGrass Festival (2019), and at the Bank of NH Stage in support of Kat Wright (2019).
