Peter Mulvey to Perform at Cock ‘n Bull in Galway October 10th

0

The Cock ‘n Bull Restaurant has announced a premiere performance by Peter Mulvey on Thursday, October 10th, at 7:30 pm. He will be accompanied by special guest Dietrich Strause.

Peter Mulvey is a veteran singer and songwriter from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. 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 will happen this September.

Mulvey continues to tour, playing over a hundred shows a year as he has for the past twenty-five years. This is the core of what he does: music, in a room, performed for a live audience.

Mulvey’s special guest is Dietrich Strause.

Strause’s songs are a mix of timeless melody, literate lyricism, and a “virtuosic command of imagery.” (The Artery, WBUR) In less than one year Strause released two albums — How Cruel That Hunger Binds and Dietrich Strause & The Blue Ribbons. His blend of midcentury modern pop and atomic-age folk has drawn comparisons to M. Ward and a young Paul Simon and has garnered him invitations to support folk luminaries such as Sarah Jarosz and Anais Mitchell, to indie pop acts like Darlingside and Lake Street Dive.
