Erin McKeown and Peter Mulvey

Thursday, June 11
Doors Open at 7 pm | Show at 8 pm

“Her playing is so muscular, her arrangements so well-conceived that she succeeds brilliantly.” - Boston Globe.

Erin McKeown is an internationally known musician, writer, and producer. With nine full-length albums, two EPs, and numerous soundtracks to her credit, she has spent the last 15 years crafting a reputation as an original musical voice and compelling live performer who effortlessly bridge genres. Averaging over 200 nights onstage each year, McKeown’s career has been filled with many incredible highlights including collaborating with Ani DiFranco, appearances on Conan O’Brien, CBS Morning Show, Later with Jools Holland, NPR, and the BBC. Her music has been featured in numerous films, television shows, and commercials such as The L Word, Dawson’s Creek, and The Gilmore Girls. In performance, the eclectic multi-instrumentalist is known for her compelling and energy-packed style that hangs onto every one of her strums.

“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

Over the past 20 years, Irish-American Peter 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. He has relentlessly toured as a headliner and has also shared the stage with luminaries such as Emmylou Harris, Richard Thompson, Ani DiFranco, and Indigo Girls, and has attracted an audience that stretches from Anchorage to Amsterdam. Whether playing solo or with a band in tow, Mulvey has a rare ability to hold an audience’s attention and transport them, using wit, humor, and a subtle but sophisticated melodic and harmonic sensibility to gracefully introduce complex and provocative concepts and characters.
