The Blue Ridge Cabin Concert Series is very honored to be hosting Peter Mulvey for a concert event. Over the past 20 years, Mulvey has pursued a restless, eclectic path as a writer and musician – immersing himself in Tin PanAlley jazz, modern acoustic, poetry, narrative, and Americana stylings.

Relentlessly touring as a headliner – his attitude is, “When you love what you do, you can work all the time,” – he has also shared the stage with luminaries such as Emmylou Harris, Richard Thompson, Ani diFranco, Indigo Girls, and Greg Brown, and has attracted an audience that stretches from Anchorage to Amsterdam.

You will NOT want to miss this one! “A word to the wise is sufficient” – Limited Seating so send your RSVP soon! If you can’t make it in person, you can catch the show online at: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/cabin-concerts

When we first started hosting house concerts, Peter Mulvey was one artist that we wanted to show up on our concert radar. “I like making records,” reflects songwriter Peter Mulvey, “but my job is the live show: getting up in a room and taking people somewhere.” Peter’s latest tour is for his 12th CD, Letters From A Flying Machine.

“This discs is actually more like a live show than any record I have made. Through the songs and stories on this album, I’m trying to figure out what actually lasts a long time,” Mulvey explains. “So it is set up to listen all the way through to take this voyage. I want the listener to hear the end of the album differently than they heard the beginning. It’s a record that’s actually about something. This is an old human statement, I know, but when all else has crumbled, love is the only thing that is real.”

Peter is an avid bicyclist and an advocate of clean sustainable living. “No matter what you do, it’s worth asking yourself if you can do it differently, if you can do it more sustainably. Can I bike to work? Even if ‘work’ takes me a thousand miles? For me, that’s a question that’s been challenging and very, very fun to answer. And it’s a question each of us owes it to future generations to ask.” For the past three years the bicycle has been Peters mode of transportation for his fall tour schedule.

Visiting the bio page on Peter’s website you’ll read that, “Over the past 20 years, Mulvey has pursued a restless, eclectic path as a writer and musician – immersing himself in Tin PanAlley jazz, modern acoustic, poetry, narrative, and Americana stylings. Relentlessly touring as a headliner – his attitude is, “When you love what you do, you can work all the time,” – he has also shared the stage with luminaries such as Emmylou Harris, Richard Thompson, Ani diFranco, Indigo Girls, and Greg Brown, and has attracted an audience that stretches from Anchorage to Amsterdam.”

“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.
