Peter 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. Small shows led to larger shows, which eventually led to regional and then national and international touring. The wheels have not stopped since.

Kat Eggleston will be opening for Peter and Denver-based singer-songwriter, John Statz will also be sitting in for a few numbers.

The concert is being presented in partnership with Debra Heesch.

His music has been described as earthy and lyrical with the blues and swing always in evidence. "You can recognize jazz as an art form," says Mr. Thomas, "but remember, it also used to be danced to.
