Minnesota songwriter Peter Mayer celebrates Earth Week with his songs about the environment. Opening act is local strings trio Deep Dish Divas.

Minnesota's Peter Mayer has been singing and songwriting full-time for over 20 years, performing in venues across the United States and beyond. He writes songs for a small planet--songs that celebrate life on earth and the mysterious and wondrous fact of our existence--songs about the vast cosmos that surrounds us and how we are a part of it all. He also writes songs about dress hats, pumpkins and pajamas, and even love and freight trains just like a good folk musician should. His music has been performed by artists like Kathy Mattea, David Wilcox, Claudia Schmidt, Anne Hills, Priscilla Herdman, Darryl Purpose, Billy Jonas, and Ronny Cox, to name a few. His work has been included in song books, church hymnals, and folk radio playlists across the country. Peter has eleven albums to his credit, and has sold over 100,000 of them. He lives in Stillwater, Minnesota with his wife and two daughters. Learn more about Mayer at petermayer.net

The concert kicks off with a local favorite, the Deep Dish Divas. This unique trio appeals to all ages and consists of Iowa natives: Karen Pierce (guitar, hammered dulcimer & vocals), Deb Hunemuller (fiddle & vocals), and Carrie Kriz (bass & vocals). They’ll dish up an eclectic mix of music including vintage songs from the 20s, 30s & 40s, folk, swing, a cappella, traditional tunes & more--featuring original arrangements and tight, 3-part vocal harmonies!
