Peter Mulvey (2018)
Sat, Sept 29 @7:30pm
Milwaukee’s Peter Mulvey is an iconoclast within the singer/songwriter world. Mulvey began his career busking on the streets of Dublin and Boston, leading to his first record deal and a leap to full-time national and international touring in the early nineties. Restless and inventive, he has made seventeen records, spanning rock and roll, folk, jazz, spoken word, and Americana. A long-standing gig at the National Youth Science Camp led to a spoken word piece, “Vlad the Astrophysicist”, which became a TEDx talk and an illustrated book. In 2007 he began an annual late summer tour by bicycle instead of by car and airplane. Mulvey continues to tour, playing over a hundred shows a year, as he has for the past twenty five years. This is the core of what he does: music, in a room, performed for a live audience.
