Blue Moon Coffeehouse to host Singer-Songwriter Mulvey

October 15, 2007

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. – Peter Mulvey will give a concert at the Blue Moon Coffeehouse on Saturday, Oct. 27 at 8 p.m. in the Memorial Center Main Lounge (104 E. University St., Bloomington). Doors open at 7:30 p.m.

A veteran Blue Moon performer, Mulvey played in bands throughout his college years at Marquette University in Milwaukee and spent six months after college living in Ireland, playing guitar for money on the streets of Dublin. He eventually won the Boston Acoustic Underground Competition after playing for commuters in the Boston subways.  Mulvey has since recorded four critically acclaimed albums and toured extensively in the U.S. and the U.K.  He is currently touring in support of his 2006 album and ninth solo release, The Knuckleball Suite, and recently completed a 300-mile portion of the tour by bicycle.

Mulvey, who hopes to inspire others to ride their bicycles or use other environmentally friendly transportation methods more often, will donate $1 to the Urban Ecology Center in Milwaukee for every ticket sold during his entire tour.

Tickets for the public are $10 each and are available at The Garlic Press (108 W. North St., Normal) and at the venue, beginning at 6 p.m. Tickets can also be reserved or purchased Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to noon and 1-4 p.m. by calling the Blue Moon Hotline at (309) 556-3815.  Ticket requests may also be e-mailed to bluemoon@iwu.edu.
