Peter Mayer
Peter Mayer

Arrowhead Center for the Arts | Grand Marais MN

Peter Mayer writes songs for a small planet—songs about interconnectedness and the human journey, about the beauty and the mystery of the world. Whimsical, humorous, and profound, his music breaks the boundaries of “folk” and transcends to a realm beyond the everyday love song, to a place of wonder at the very fact of life itself.

“Mayer’s fluid, clean, and tremendously intriguing guitar playing is topped with warm, rich vocals. This is music for the soul.” ~ Acoustic Guitar Magazine

Tickets $15 general admission at door or in advance at www.aca.tix.com (no fees)
