We’re thrilled about the return of Peter Mulvey (https://www.petermulvey.com/) to SongSpace! Peter Mulvey has been a songwriter, road-dog, raconteur, and almost-poet since before he can remember.
In 1989 he spent a year in Ireland, busking on the streets of Dublin and hitchhiking to whatever gigs he could find. Back stateside, he spent a couple years gigging through the bars of his native Midwest before taking off for Boston, where he returned to subway busking and coffeehouses.
Small shows led to larger shows, which eventually led to regional and then national touring. The wheels have not stopped since. Twenty albums, one illustrated book, thousands of live performances, a TEDx talk, a decades-long association with the National Youth Science Camp, opening tours and gigs for luminaries such as Ani DiFranco, Greg Brown, Emmylou Harris and Chuck Prophet, appearances on NPR, an annual autumn tour by bicycle, emceeing festivals, hosting his own Lamplighter Sessions for years in Boston and in Wisconsin… he has built his life’s work on collaboration, on an instinct for the eclectic and the vital.
His latest CD, “Love is the Only Thing”, made with the string duo Sista Strings (https://www.sistastrings.com/), is about love and family in the midst of a dying empire.
