I 1 HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY. JANUARY 15, 2010 9 MRAC to feature Mulvey in first Folk Series Performance Submitted by MRAClSilver City The Mimbres Region Arts Council will warm up the new year with its first Folk Series Per- formance featuring singer/ songwriter Peter Mulvey and a special opening show by Nicole Reynolds. The event, to be held Friday, Jan. 15, beginning at 7:30 p.m. at the Silco Theater will be followed up by a special opportunity for concert-goers to enjoy into the night as the Parlor will offer com- plimentary appetizers to those with a Mulvey ticket. Mulvey's music is known for striking a person with how com- plete it feels -- a voice and a gui- tar ... the facts. When an artist's work is reduced to element, it in- evitably tells something about the musicality at the bottom line. In this case, the approach also reveals a complexity of detail, a bedrock of solid technique, and a fullness and range of effect that are rare in a solo musicianship. It's the sort of sufficiency that can only be achieved through long years and hard listening.( The lyrical progression through his now-12 records has been a movement toward a [nore open language and greater detail, toward finding and naming 'the sacraments in the small facts of living. Mulvey began as a self-de- scribed "city kid" from Milwau- kee, Wisc. He played, wrote and sang in bands while studying the- ater at Marquette University. Af- ter graduating, he traveled to Ire- land, where he learned the trade of busker on the streets of Dublin. Returning to the U.S. a few years later, he settled in Boston, build-- ing an,audience through street and subway performing, while also immersing himself in the thriving ,musical community. (Always looking for ways to further immerse himself in lan- guage, art, and music, Mulvey has alsd scored music for theatre and modern dance, and has had numerous songs featured in film and television including various WB programs and PBS documen- taries. lease brings it all back to where it started the man, his guitar and .......... His most recent album. "Let- ters from a Flying Machine" in- clude correspondence written to his nieces and nephews on one of his many trips around the world. "My first niece was born nine years ago, and on that very day ! wrote her a letter," says Mulvey said. "Over the years, I just kept it up, with her and with the other ones as they came along. At first I wasn't sure why I was writing letters to kids,who couldn't even read yet, but pretty soon, I figured out that I was. writ- ing to their future selves; each letter is a kind oftime capsule?' Having been born into a family of steelworkers. Reynolds initially wanted to write to con- vey the struggle of the working class. However, her music has since taken flight into her per- sonal life ... being shaped by re- lationships and life battles. "I like writing about every- thing, anything that's on my mind," she said. Reynolds began playing the guitar in college, where she ma- jored in jazz guitar and composi- tion. gwing her the ability to play "exactly what I feel," she ex- plained. Reynolds said her work is difficult to classify as it rings of singer/songwriter, folk, alter- native and more. "Sometimes I think my songs can be pretty quirky thought- ful, I hope. Ilike to blend the so- cial with the political, because in life, they are." she said. Growing up in a conservative family in Pennsylvania, Reynolds said she was challenged by her unique personality and the fact that she is gay. By listening to other folk musicians, such as Ani DiFranco, Dan Burn and Pe- ter Mulvey, who sing about alter- native lifestyles, Reynolds said she found self confidence and a way to exist in her sometimes cookie-cutter suburb.

In her albums, Reynolds bridges numerous topics includ- ing farming, mining, love and the environment, based upon her lifestyle working on farms, grow- ing her own food and touring the country. She said that she takes notes about her thoughts and life daily and uses her self-question- ing to put bring lyrics to her mu- sic. "I always write the music first, then add the words. Because I majored in guitar in college, it gave me the great knowledge of music and the ability to play ex- actly what I feel ... and usually I can put words to that," she said. "I question everything and like writing about everything. I like to sit down and write a song and then come up with the answers. Writing music is really therapeu- tic."
