“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


“Peter Mulvey is all substance, which is his style.”

— The Boston Globe


Peter Mulvey grew up in Wisconsin, in the frozen North of the

U.S. He set out early on the American road, playing gigs in

coffee shops and bars from New York City to Anchorage,

Alaska, from New Orleans to Seattle. He quickly established a

reputation as a true road-dog and roving poetic soul which

has deepened into that of veteran.

His latest two records were produced by Chuck Prophet and

Ani DiFranco, and his relentless touring over decades has

sharpened and deepened his show. Always writing, always

restless, and brimming with tales of new experiences, he is

not to be missed.

Mulvey first came to Ireland as a teenager in 1989, cutting

classes from St. Patrick’s in Maynooth and taking the 57 bus

into Dublin to play with all the other buskers on Grafton

Street, tunes from “Fisherman’s Blues” and “This Is the

Sea”… Van Morrison, Peter Gabriel, Violent Femmes. He

bought an old army coat with his coins and hitchhiked to the

Burren and Doolin, to Blacklion and Castleblayney.

He returned in 1997 to open tours for his mentor, the

bluesman Chris Smither, and from that point forward played

at least two tours each year in Ireland, favoring longer stints

including small town gigs in Athlone, Mallow, Clones,

Clonakilty (as opposed to the common practice of hitting

Cork, Dublin, and perhaps Galway before hopping over to the

Continent or the UK).


After a few years of inexplicable absence, Mulvey has decided

that there are only so many years in a life, and that he’ll be

touring Ireland often as long as the fates allow.

Don’t miss this extraordinary performer as he brings his remarkable show to The Vintage Room at our place on Saturday, 21 April!
