Singer-songwriter Peter Mayer from Stillwater, Minnesota, will be in concert at Top Hat Theatre, Ulen on Saturday, January 11, 7:30 p.m.

Peter Mayer 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.

Peter began playing the guitar and writing songs when he was in high school.

He studied theology and music in college, and then spent two years in seminary.

After deciding that the priesthood wasn’t for him, he took a part-time job as a church music director for eight years, while performing at clubs and colleges and writing and recording his music.

In 1995, he quit his job and started touring full-time.

Since then, Peter has gradually gained a dedicated, word-of-mouth following, playing shows from Minnesota to Texas, New England to California.

He has nine CDs to his credit and has sold over 70,000 of them independently.

They can also be purchased in person at the school office.

Doors open to the public at 6:30 p.m.
