Folksinger, songwriter, poet, philosopher, satirist, social commentator – Peter Mayer defies all conventional labels and rolls them all into one, resulting in his own brand of music.

“I’m interested in exploring the mysteries of life and in making meaning in this astonishing world we live in,” says Mr. Mayer, a native of Minnesota.

Mr. Mayer will perform at Lake Street Church, 607 Lake St., at 7:30 p.m. on April 16. Tickets are $20 in advance at petermayer.myevent.com or $25 at the door (cash preferred). Snacks will be offered and CDs will be available.
