Event

Peter Mulvey in Concert
Saturday, April 5, 2014
$18 Members, $20 Non-Members(General tickets)

Peter Mulvey performs original songs as well as songs from a vast, varied, and deep well of classic and obscure covers. Described by the Washington Post as, "sophisticated and intimate...husky, hushed baritone, as cover-worthy as Randy Newman, Elvis Costello and Dar Williams..." Mulvey is especially known for his ecological tour methodology - biking from concert to concert, sometimes as many as a thousand miles apart. After twenty years on the road, the process of divining the heart of a song and being alert to where the moment can lead has shaped this artist. To each rendition, he brings the soul of a singer, a light touch in a heavy world. Recorded in just three days at Signature Sounds Studios in CT, The Good Stuff (2012) is a sequence in which a bluesy take on the Ellington classic "Mood Indigo" is sandwiched between Tom Waits' obscure "Green Grass," lovingly relocated from the guttural, and a charmingly haphazard rendition of Jolie Holland's "Old Fashioned Morphine". This triptych represents not so much the diversity of songwriting as the commonality. "I'd put those three artists in the same drawer in the big bureau of songwriters," says Mulvey. "They're from different eras, and considered different animals - jazz composer, bohemian beat poet, Americana revivalist - but to my ear they're the same, in that they're always trying to write a timeless song." "Peter Mulvey is all substance, which is his style." "His voice feels like ne old leather, and his guitar sounds like it's on steroids... a superb technician..."- The Boston Globe.
