In 2000, Peter Mulvey released “The Trouble With Poets”, the first collection of songs co-written with guitarist/composer/producer David Goodrich. The record became an instant fan favorite, and Mulvey and Goodrich embarked on nearly a decade of touring and writing as a duo, with Mulvey’s acoustic guitar and urgent baritone perfectly complemented by Goodrich’s rich, atmospheric improvisations.

The record is a tour de force in song craft and innovation, with electric guitar and mandolin framing the rhythm section of Mike Piehl on drums and Lou Ulrich on bass. The eleven songs represent a deepening and strengthening of Mulvey’s writing. His collaboration with Goodrich established the vividness in his music for years to come.

Now, twenty years later, Mulvey is taking this record back on the road to accompany its re-issue on CD and a first-ever vinyl edition. He’ll be performing across his usual haunts in North America, playing the record in its entirety, as well as songs from the dozen records he has released since.
