Peter Mayer Concert Under the Stars!
When: Sat, June 15, 7:30 pm
Where: UUFSD Amphitheater (get map)
Renown UU folk musician Peter Mayer ('Blue Boat Home') "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."
For more on Peter Mayer visit petermayer.net
and listen on YouTube to his music:
Blue Boat Home, Holy Now and The Play.
And for a little of his whimsical side, enjoy Happy Place.
Tickets are $18 in advance and $22 at the door. All profits from the show directly benefit the UUFSD Concert Budget.
