If you long for a musical experience that excites your groove and your mind, this is the one for you. These two smart, innovative men are deeply immersed in a world of art that encompasses music, language and vision.
Over the past 20 years, Peter Mulvey has pursued a restless, eclectic path as a writer and musician - immersing himself in Tin Pan Alley jazz, modern acoustic, poetry, narrative, and Americana stylings. He has also shared the stage with luminaries such as Emmylou Harris, Richard Thompson, Ani DiFranco, Indigo Girls, and Greg Brown, and has attracted an audience that stretches from Anchorage to Amsterdam. Peter will be joined by friend and collaborator Andy Friedman.
Andy is a cartoonist for The New Yorker magazine, but the songs written by this "hard scrabble singer-songwriter" (Time Out New York) and "erudite redneck" (Boston Globe) aren't written for laughs. Nicknamed the "Hillbilly Leonard Cohen," Friedman's "fractured folk songs" (Los Angeles Times) explore issues of art, wild dreams, and wanderlust, while celebrating "those who wash down life's knuckle sandwiches with ice-cold despair" (Time Out New York).
NPR's Faith Salie adds, "Friedman is not exactly one of those musicians you play while you're paying your bills or cleaning the house. His songs demand that you sit down and listen to them, which is why he is such a hot live act."
