Noted Folk Singer Peter Donnelly to Perform at Kean University
UNION, N.J. Peter Donnelly, a leading singer and songwriter of
the well-established Provincetown, Mass., folk-music scene, will perform
on Saturday, May 3, at 8 p.m. at Kean Universitys Wilkins Theatre,
1000 Morris Avenue, Union, N.J.
Folk-music fans know Donnelly best for his live solo performances at noted venues across the northeastern U.S., including Dont Tell Mama in New York City. They will also remember Donnellys much-loved first CD, A Sure Thing. Donnelly has gained recognition for his song Dance All Night Long, which was used in the documentary First Impressions, directed by Wes Horner. And, his song Road With No End was featured on a compilation CD to benefit Provincetowns public-radio station, WOMR. A former member of the musical trio Comfortable Shoes, Donnelly performed with the group at Carnegie Hall for the 16th anniversary of The New York Pops.
Donnelly has been critically acclaimed for his vocal range and musical versatility, which he lends to everything from intimate ballads to courageous and unapologetic songs on contemporary topics. The Folk Journal of Boulder, Colo., wrote, "Donnellys voice flows with richness and vitality, and his treatment of melodies is innovative. He is a skillful guitarist and creates a dynamic solo presentation."
Jennifer Vaughn, Kean sophomore and jazz vocalist, will open the show for Donnelly.
