Conant Homestead a small farm located in Westbrook ME which is adjacent to Portland. It is a very short walk up from the Presumpscot River and Saccarappa Falls where concert goers can walk an adjacent trail, swim in the river, linger by the falls and spend time with the goats. Often there will be a fire to sit around after the show.

The series highlights a range of music from world to original folk and Americana and original singer song writers. 2024 will be the 6th year of our series. It is on an expansive lawn with a rudimentary stage set beneath the embrace of the limbs of a large Hemlock tree.

Concerts are $10 - $15 suggested donation with all proceeds going to the musicians.

It is BYO everything and very kid / pet (leashed) friendly. Rain dates tend to be the next night or found later in the season.

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. The wheels have not stopped since.

Nineteen records, an illustrated book, thousands of live performances, a TEDx talk, a decades-long association with the National Youth Science Camp, opening for luminaries such as Ani DiFranco, Emmylou Harris, and Chuck Prophet, appearances on NPR, an annual autumn tour by bicycle, emceeing festivals, hosting his own boutique festival (the Lamplighter Sessions, in Boston and Wisconsin)… Mulvey never stops. He has built his life’s work on collaboration and an instinct for the eclectic and the vital. He folds everything he encounters into his work: poetry, social justice, scientific literacy, & a deeply abiding humanism are all on plain display in his art.

In late January 2019, Mulvey and his band, SistaStrings (Chauntee & Monique Ross) with Nathan Kilen on drums, decamped to their home turf, the Cafe Carpe, in Fort Atkinson, WI where they spent just five days making two records in the tiny back room. The live record, “Peter Mulvey with SistaStrings Live at the Cafe Carpe” is out now on Righteous Babe Records. It’s a celebration of a world that is temporarily on hold: a small folk club, packed with listeners, and a band shoulder-to-shoulder, playing and singing with intimacy and abandon.

$20/adult; $10/age 18 and under; maximum of $50/family. If the cost of a ticket is a barrier to attending, please enter any amount in the payment box, and join us that evening. All seating is general admission.
