Peter Mayer
08/18/2018: 7:30 PM@ Arrowhead Center for the Arts
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.

"Mayer’s fluid, clean, and tremendously intriguing guitar playing is topped with warm, rich vocals. This is music for the soul." Acoustic Guitar Magazine

"He is unafraid of complicated topics and always strives to look beyond the easy sentiment... Peter does nothing less than address the very nature of our existence... Trust me, most songwriters can’t pull this off. Peter Mayer does." Dale Connelly, Morning Show Host, Minnesota Public Radio

Tickets: $15 general admission, at the box office (opens 6:30 pm) or in advance at www.aca.tix.com (no fees!)

The Lucky Dutch - Benefit for NSMA

The Lucky Dutch is an American rock band from Illinois, formed in 2008 by guitarist Nathan Graham and singer Claire Corriveau. Graham has performed as a guitarist on the Chicago blues scene since age 15, working and touring with musicians such as Buddy Guy, BB King, and Koko Taylor.

Claire Corriveau has worked consistently as a performing musician since 2008, both as a solo artist and with a wide variety of bands. David Padula has played bass since 2006, working in a jazz trio through college before moving to Chicago in 2012. Ben Dacoba started playing drums at age 15 in Virginia. He draws inspiration from classic rock bands from the ‘60s and ‘70s and works as a touring drummer all around the country. 

The group began their career as an indie band, performing extensively around Chicago’s bar and festival scene. The Lucky Dutch have released two LPs: Bury the Night in 2014, and Cadillac Coffin in 2016. In May 2018, they released a new single called "My Time Ain't Long."
