Don’t Miss Katie Dahl and Peter Mulvey Live – January 6

TAP will kick off 2023 with a live performance, one night only, featuring two musicians who are Door County favorites. We are so excited to feature Katie Dahl and Peter Mulvey live on January 6, 2023 at 7:30PM.

Katie Dahl is a songwriter and playwright whose work is as expansive as Lake Michigan and as deeply rooted as its rocky coastal bluffs. A small-town celebrity on the Wisconsin peninsula where her family has lived for 175 years, she is now a radio-charting folk artist who tours around the world. Clear-eyed and tough-minded, fresh and funny, Katie “delivers razor-sharp lyrics with a hearty, soulful voice” (American Songwriter).

Peter Mulvey has been a songwriter, road-dog, raconteur and almost-poet since before he can remember. Raised working-class Catholic on the Northwest side of Milwaukee, he took a semester in Ireland, and immediately began cutting classes to busk on Grafton Street in Dublin and hitchhike through the country, finding whatever gigs he could. Back stateside, he spent a couple years gigging in the Midwest before lighting out for Boston, where he returned to busking (this time in the subway) and coffeehouses. Small shows led to larger shows, which eventually led to regional and then national and international touring.

Artistic Director Jacob Janssen says of the upcoming performance, “This is a great opportunity to experience the amazing music that Door County has to offer. These two are really talented, and we’re lucky to be able to host them for this performance.”

Katie Dahl and Peter Mulvey will perform live January 6, 2023, 7:30PM at Third Avenue PlayWorks, 239 N 3rd Avenue, Sturgeon Bay, WI 54235. Tickets are $25 for general admission. To purchase tickets, call (920) 743-1760 or visit the website: Katie Dahl & Peter Mulvey Live at TAP – Third Avenue PlayWorks.
