Door County Performance: Songwriter Mulvey Performs at the White Gull Inn

Singer, songwriter and guitarist Peter Mulvey will perform at the White Gull Inn in Fish Creek on Wednesday, February 4. Opening for Mulvey will be singer-songwriter Krista Detor. Tickets for the 8 pm concert, the fifth in a series of six scheduled at the inn this winter, are $15.

Mulvey 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’s latest album, Notes from Elsewhere (Signature Sounds) is a retrospective collection of the most popular songs Mulvey has written and performed over his 15-year recording career. Recorded solo in a studio, they are fresh takes on songs that have become fan and critic favorites over the years. While Mulvey’s previous band-backed albums showcased the songs, these solo versions allow each song to stand on its own, demonstrating Peter’s strengths as a songwriter.

Singer-songwriter Krista Detor’s music crosses genres, but her writing has been compared to the likes of Leonard Cohen, Laura Nyro, Tom Waits and Joni Mitchell. She tours the United States and Europe consistently.

An optional pre-concert fixed price dinner will be served at 6 pm. The menu consists of hunter style chicken, truffle scented mashed potatoes, pear walnut salad with blue cheese dressing, and triple chocolate pie with cappuccino cream for dessert.

Tickets for the concert, reservations for the dinner and information can be obtained by calling the White Gull at 920.868.3517.
