The gift a ticket option is not a general admission ticket, but a way to allow members of our community who might not otherwise be able to come to attend the concert.
Horizon Unitarian Universalist Church kicks off our installation weekend celebrations with a concert from singer-songwriter Peter Mayer, known for such songs as "Blue Boat Home" and "Holy Now". 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 about interconnectedness and the human journey--songs about life on earth and the mysterious and wondrous fact of our existence. He also writes songs about dress hats, pumpkins and pajamas, and other important stuff.
Peter's songs are sung regularly in Unitarian Universalist congregations. 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.
Local Singer-Songwriter Colin Boyd will open the show.
Proceeds will help fund our installation weekend events. Any excess funds will benefit the Ministers Discretionary Fund, which helps members of the Horizon community with immediate financial needs.
Mayer's songs are crafted like Shaker furniture, with no place for superfluous embellishments or throwaway lines...(his) world is bright and hopeful and the transcendent nature of his lyrics...explore the mysteries of life...Mayer's fluid, clean, and tremendously intriguing guitar playing is topped with warm, rich vocals. This is music for the soul.
--Ken Sheldon, Acoustic Guitar Magazine
His guitar work is breath-taking, his lyrics mind-spinning, his singing soul-soothing and his feet-on-the-ground optimism nothing short of healing.
--Marilyn Rea-Beyer, music director, WUMB Radio, Boston
Peter Mayer makes it look easy--beautifully crafted that pose eternal questions--his arrangements make it sound like there is certainly more than one man and his guitar in the XM Satellite Radio studios.
--Mary Sue Twohy, XM Radio
