Peter Mulvey, whose playing ranges from tender acoustic picking to rootsy blues & jazz returns to the Winter Wind stage on November 16. Tickets are $20 for the 7:00 PM concert, held in The Depot, 200 S. Jones Ave.
The Boston Globe describes Mulvey as “Gleefully mercurial...equal parts breezy jazz and whispery folk. His voice feels like fine old leather, and his guitar sounds like it’s on steroids...a superb technician with a fondness for ignoring the rules...a genre-defying traditionalist — a knuckleballer with finger-picks.
Mulvey is an American singer-songwriter based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Since the early 1990s, he has developed a strong national following in the indie folk/rock scene through his relentless touring and critically acclaimed albums, bringing his music to audiences from Fairbanks to Bilbao, Santa Monica to Montreal, in clubs, theaters, coffeeshops, the Kennedy Center, old barns and The Depot in Norman OK.
Mulvey continues to travel, ears open and wide awake, through the unlimited territory of music, continuing his restless search for the elusive moment when a song comes alive through the alchemical combining of an audience, a performer, and the song itself.
