The Purple Fiddle presents The Suitcase Junket with Peter Mulvey

June 25, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 11:55 pm


The nationally touring, slide guitar playing, throat singing one-man band.

“Not everyone can pull off the one-man-band gambit without lapsing into schtick, but Amherst’s Matt Lorenz has it all down to an art…. The songs are what you remember.” — The Boston Globe

“With a guitar from an oil can and a percussion section hidden inside a piece of battered luggage… he performed his wonderfully passionate roots music, belted forth from the junk he’d stitched together. All by himself, he sounded like a full hobo band playing on a train racing rhythmically onward.” — Preview Massachusetts Magazine


The eclectic range of Mulvey’s tireless past pays handsome dividends on this stylistically sweeping, LA-recorded album. A crack specially convened band (including regular Dylan drummer David Kemper) adhere to his well-established live and direct recording approach and allow the performer’s deeply matured, naturally wry and hard-edged Americana to attain full, flowing life. From the raunchy melodic pop of “Sympathies” through suburban requiem “Remember the Milkman”, the dizzying weirdness of “If You Shoot At A King” and even Led Zeppelin modal thunder on “Copenhagen Airport”, Mulvey’s troubled visions attain striking clarity. – Gavin Martin, Uncut
