OSWEGO COUNTY – The Oswego Music Hall will welcome musical artist Peter Mulvey to the National Stage on Saturday, January 14th.
Mulvey’s eclectic and poetic style is characterized by warm, ironic lyrics and passionate percussive guitar sounds. The Macrobie Civic Center at 41 Lake Street, Oswego opens at 7:00 PM and the show begins at 7:30 PM.
Mulvey has been a songwriter, a street dog, a talker, and almost a poet since before he can remember. Raised a working-class Catholic on the northwest side of Milwaukee, Mulvay spent his college semester in Ireland and soon dropped out of his classes to take up busking in Dublin’s Grafton Street. He hitchhiked across the country, finding every gig he could.
Back in the states, Mulvey played gigs in the Midwest for a few years before setting the lights on for Boston, back to busking (this time on the subway), and playing coffeehouses. Smaller shows led to larger shows and eventually regional, and national and international tours. Since then, the wheels have not stopped.
His colorful career includes 20 records, an illustrated book, thousands of live performances, TEDx talks, and a decades-long association with the National Youth Science Camp. Mulvey has opened for such celebrities as Ani DiFranco, Emmylou Harris, and Chuck Prophet, and performed at his NPR and officiating festivals, including his own boutique his festival, Lamplighter Sessions, in Boston and Wisconsin. . His Mulvey, who takes part in the annual Fall Tour on his bike, never stops.
He has built his life’s work on collaboration and instinct for what is eclectic and significant. He incorporates everything he encounters into his work. Poetry, social justice, scientific literacy and a deep-seated humanism are evident in his work.
