"His voice feels like fine old leather, and his guitar sounds like it's on steroids... a superb technician..." - The Boston Globe

Critical acclaim has been consistent and enthusiastic over the years for Peter Mulvey.


The Boston Globe sums it up, "His voice feels like fine old leather, and his guitar sounds like it's on steroids... a superb technician..."

Mulvey has developed a strong national following in the indie folk/rock scene through his relentless touring and prolific discography. He is best known for his warmly wry songwriting and his intense percussive guitar style.

He began as a self-described "city kid" from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He played, wrote, and sang in bands while studying theatre at Marquette University. After graduating, he traveled to Ireland, where he learned the trade of busker on the streets of Dublin. Returning to the U.S. a few years later, he settled in Boston, building an audience through street and subway performing, while also immersing himself in the thriving musical community.

Mulvey has amassed a catalog of inventive albums with creative approach to lyrics and musicality.

Opening the show will be Lyle Brewer. Lyle Brewers new solo guitar album Juno is the result of two things: the snowstorms that consumed Boston in the early months of 2015 and the sobriety that saved his life. Juno was released on the one-year anniversary of Brewers decision to get sober, and its stripped-down, acoustic instrumental songs reveal a newfound sense of clarity and renewal. Juno, which made the Boston Globes list of Best Local Albums of 2015, showcases the cool sophistication of his guitar playing, not to mention his evolution as a songwriter (Boston Globe). The first blizzard of the season hit Boston on January 27, 2015 and shut down the city for three days. That blizzard, Juno, lent its name to the title track. Every storm that winter, Brewer wrote a song. He wrote more over the summer, even as he was finishing up work on his self-titled record (released June 4, 2015).Without hangovers, he wrote in the morning, and without late nights at the bar, he wrote at night. He wrote a piece inspired by Bach, and another inspired by Brazilian composer Luiz Bonfa. The only reason I was able to do this is because I got sober, he says. Period. Sobriety saved my ass big time. I am extremely proud of this album. I am extremely lucky to have supportive people in my life. I am grateful to be alive, to be sober, to be able to make music for a living."
