Singer-songwriter Peter Mulvey will return to Door County for a solo concert at the Kress Pavilion on Feb. 9, 7 pm. The concert is part of the Village of Egg Harbor’s Art of Music winter concert series.
Mulvey has been a songwriter, road-dog, raconteur and almost-poet since before he can remember. Raised working-class Catholic on the Northwest side of Milwaukee, he took a semester in Ireland, and immediately began cutting classes to busk on Grafton Street in Dublin and hitchhike through the country, finding whatever gigs he could. Back stateside, he spent a couple years gigging in the Midwest before lighting out for Boston, where he returned to busking (this time in the subway) and coffeehouses. Small shows led to larger shows, which eventually led to regional and then national and international touring.
Over the years, Mulvey has created nineteen records, written an illustrated book, done a TEDx talk and performed thousands of live concerts. His unique indie-folk sound has earned him a national following.
Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at the door, but seat reservations are recommended and can be made at kresspavilion.org/winterconcertseries.
