Popular Door County singer-songwriter Katie Dahl will join nationally touring singer-songwriter (and Milwaukee native) Peter Mulvey to present an intimate evening of songs at Kress Pavilion (7845 Church Street, Egg Harbor) on Wednesday, November 14 at 7 p.m.
Admission is $20. Advance ticket reservations are recommended and can be made at www.katiedahlmusic.com. Pending availability, tickets will also be available (cash only) the night of the show. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Beer will be available for purchase to benefit the Friends of the Pavilion.
Peter Mulvey is a veteran singer and songwriter from Milwaukee. He began his career on the streets of Dublin, Ireland, as a busker, and from there moved on to performing in the subways and streets of Boston, Massachusetts. This led to his first record deal and a leap to full-time national and international touring, beginning in the early nineties.
Mulvey is an iconoclast within the singer/songwriter world. Restless and inventive, he has made seventeen records, spanning rock and roll, folk, Jazz, spoken word, and Americana. A long-standing gig at the National Youth Science Camp led to a spoken word piece, “Vlad the Astrophysicist,” which became a TEDx talk, and then an illustrated book. In 2007 he began an annual late summer tour by bicycle instead of by car and airplane- the 10th annual bicycle tour happened just this past September. He has taught songwriting and guitar workshops at the Swannanoa Gathering and at various folk festivals across the U.S.
The Irish Times calls Peter Mulvey “a joy to see” and “a phenomenal performer with huge energy, a quick-fire, quirky take on life, and an extraordinary guitar style.” The Washington Post praises “the subtle power of his voice, a husky, hushed baritone,” and calls it “at once sophisticated and intimate.”
Door County singer-songwriter Katie Dahl, says the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, “combines old-fashioned populism, an abiding love of the land and wickedly smart love songs, all delivered in a rich and expressive alto.” Known for the literate candor of her songs and the easy humor of her live performances, Dahl also has four studio albums to her credit. In October 2017, her album “Solid Ground” hit number 15 on the national folk radio charts. Her original musical “Victory Farm” has been produced to great acclaim three times at Northern Sky Theater. Dar Williams calls Katie’s work “the very best kind of songwriting,” and Wisconsin Public Radio calls her “the real deal.”
