Peter Mulvey's Lamplighter Sessions are coming to Club Passim on Tuesday, October 31th at 8 PM. Mulvey has been transported by music suspiciously often in his life, and from the beginning, he sensed a pattern: most of these moments were impromptu, they happened offstage, and they involved people communicating something sublime in this elusive yet utterly reliable language we all share. The music-ness of moments is at its best when two or more players don’t quite know where it’s all going, and yet have enough of a common idea of the map at hand that they’re all going together. The Lamplighter Sessions is Mulvey’s dogged attempt to set up, year after year, lightning rods in a field, to coax these offstage moments into being onstage. Tickets are on-sale now at www.clubpassim.org. This particular performance will be a Halloween Shindig with Thank God for Science and Tim Gearan.
