Event

LAMPLIGHTER December 11 2014
Back at it with the winter Lamplighter Series, done in the half round with three to four musicians, one of them usually being Peter Mulvey, rotating songs & stories and musicianifying and magicianifying together.

Peter explains it thus:

"People, this is the heart of what I do. I love to get musicians together and to play music in its raw, conversational form. To listen, to jump in without knowing exactly what comes next, to be surprised and enlivened. This is the holy grail for me: to play music as though it's happening offstage, for pure joy and discovery and communication between friends and strangers. And over the past decade or so, first in the winter at my hometown Cafe Carpe, and then over the past three years at my home-away-from-hometown ClubPassim, I've found a way to tease this kind of offstage music into an onstage situation: The Lamplighter Sessions. It changes every year, but then, don't we all? Trust me, you should get to one of these shows if you can. Lightning will strike."

PETER MULVEY - "master guitar wizard, erudite song writer and just all around great guy.  The depth in any Mulvey song is incredible from the mastery of tune & rhythm, to the lyrics, even down to the concept of his albums". Whitney Luckett

Peter will be joined this night by Madison duo COUNT THIS PENNY, and their friend SIMON BALTO.

"If you like the Everybodyfields, the Civil Wars, or some old school Gram and Emmylou, you will dig Count This Penny." -Muzzle of Bees  Austin, TX

"Their archetypal Appalachian magnetism, insane harmonies and personal charm will pull you in and warm you through on a chilly November night."  -American Players Theatre  Spring Green, WI

The subjects are often bleak, but the melodies and harmonies are cathartic."  -Metro Pulse  Knoxville, TN

Simon is a writer of folk and alt-country songs from southern Wisconsin. His music draws from a range of influences, both musical and not. More than anything, the style and storytelling are especially informed by the hills of southwestern Wisconsin that were his early home, and by the people he's met there and in travels around the country. An avid writer and reader, Balto's songs focus on narration: workers and lovers, mothers and sons, the dying and mourning, the prideful and the abused.
