Threshold Autumn Sessions: Peter Mulvey in concert "Homing"
Time & Location
About the Event
Peter Mulvey returns to Threshold for his fourth concert with us to wrap up our AUTUMN SESSIONS: AMERICANA FOLK TRADITIONS.
Peter Mulvey is an American folk singer-songwriter, who hales from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Mulvey has been a songwriter, road-dog, raconteur and almost-poet since before he can remember. Since the early 1990s, he has developed a strong national following in the indie folk/rock scene through his relentless touring and critically acclaimed albums.
Eighteen records, one illustrated book, thousands of live performances, a TEDx talk, a decades-long association with the National Youth Science Camp, opening for luminaries such as Ani DiFranco, Emmylou Harris, and Chuck Prophet, appearances on NPR, an annual autumn tour by bicycle, emceeing festivals, hosting his own boutique festival (the Lamplighter Sessions, in Boston and Wisconsin)...Mulvey never stops. He has built his life’s work on collaboration and on an instinct for the eclectic and the vital. He folds everything he encounters into his work: poetry, social justice, scientific literacy, and a deeply abiding humanism are all on plain display in his art.
Awesome food and beverages will be available for purchase. Enjoy meeting old and new friends before the show and during intermission. Peter has chosen Open Doors for Refugees (www.opendoorsforrefugees.org), a Madison organization that welcomes and supports refugees who are settled in the Madison area as the recipient of donations raised by his performance.
