Live on Excursions: Peter Mulvey

Susan Frikken
Peter Mulvey


Who makes a perfect “road trip record?” According to Niki Dakota, it’s Peter Mulvey.

Singer-songwriter Peter Mulvey has been recording and touring as a solo artist since the early 1990’s. Originally from Wisconsin, Mulvey’s music has taken him everywhere from Dublin, Ireland to the streets of Boston, where he performed early on in his career. Over the last 15 years, he has steadily developed a following through critically acclaimed folk records like 2006’s “The Knuckleball Suite.”

In 2009, Mulvey called Excursions for an enlightening interview with host Niki Dakota. The two discussed the inspiration for his then-current record, “Letters from a Flying Machine,” as well as Mulvey’s views on life and philosophy.
