Friends House Concerts Welcomes Singer-Songwriter Peter Mulvey To Town

We’re going to keep it short and sweet this week, but we would be remiss if we did not remind you that Wisconsin singer-songwriter Peter Mulvey will be playing an intimate Friends House Concert in Colorado Springs this coming Saturday night, just in time for the Spring equinox.

And, Peter will be joined by opening act Megan Burtt from Denver, who has won songwriting competitions at both the Rocky Mountain Folks Fest and the Kerrville Folk Fest in 2011.  There are still a few seats left – reservations are required so make yours today.  In the meantime, here is a video of Peter performing his song “Shirt” in the Netherlands last year.
