Peter Mulvey Comes to Phoenicia Saturday June 3rd


Peter Mulvey has been reviewed by Rolling Stone and the Associated Press, featured on National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered”, and called “as cover-worthy as Randy Newman, Elvis Costello and Dar Williams” by the Washington Post. For 16 straight summers he’s performed at the National Youth Science Camp in West Virginia and this September, for the tenth consecutive year, his fall concert tour will again be conducted by bicycle. As the AP reviewer of his new CD “Are You Listening?” (produced by his friend Ani DiFranco with her road band as accompanists) puts it – “This singer-songwriter marches to his own drum, even when there isn’t one”.

His voice feels like fine old leather, and his guitar sounds like it’s on steroids.” The Boston Globe

“Peter Mulvey is consistently the most original and dynamic of the US singer-songwriters to tour these shores. A phenomenal performer with huge energy, a quick fire, quirky take on life, and an extraordinary guitar style. A joy to see.” The Irish Times

“Intense, iconoclastic… Mulvey exudes talent.” Sing Out

“Mulvey spins out a rhythmically intriguing cascade of images and thoughts, influenced by poetry and spoken word… like some Tin Pan Alley wit gone beatnik.” The Boston Herald

“Singularly gifted” Mojo (UK)

“Peter Mulvey is one of the most accomplished guitarists you’re ever likely to hear …his intelligent and sometimes complex songs engage both hemispheres of the listener’s brain.” The Irish Examiner
