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, Mass. 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 17 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. He has taught songwriting and guitar workshops at the Swannanoa Gathering and at various folk festivals across the U.S. He is best known for his warmly wry songwriting and his intense percussive guitar style.
