GILFORD — On Saturday, October 11, at 7:00 p.m., singer-songwriter and guitarist Peter Mayer will be performing in concert at Gilford Community Church, 19 Potter Hill Rd. in Gilford.
Singing from his repertoire of original songs, acoustic music and contemporary folk music, Mayer writes songs for a small planet—songs about interconnectedness and the human journey; songs about the mystery and beauty of the world.
"Peter Mayer is a magician....(his) universe is full of metaphor and meaning, story and symbol—everything contains more than meets the eye." - Bill Reed, music editor, Colorado Springs Gazette.
"His guitar work is breath-taking, his lyrics mind-spinning, his singing soul-soothing and his feet-on-the-ground optimism nothing short of healing." - Marilyn Rea-Beyer, music director, WUMB Radio, Boston.
"Mayer's songs are crafted like Shaker furniture, with no place for superfluous embellishments or throwaway lines....(his) fluid, clean, and tremendously intriguing guitar playing is topped with warm, rich vocals." - Acoustic Guitar Magazine.
Mayer started touring full-time in 1995 and has gradually amassed a dedicated, word-of-mouth following, selling out shows from Minnesota to Texas, New England to California. He has eight CD's to his credit (his latest, "Third Street", will be released this fall).
Tickets may be purchased from the church office at $10 per person ($15 at the door).
