Storyline

In 2001, Peter Mulvey went into the subways of Boston to record his fifth album, Ten Thousand Mornings. Parts of the recording project were caught on video by independent filmmakers Aaron, Seth, and Justin Howland, three brothers more formally known as 7 Fluid Oz. Productions. With just a little rough footage, On the Way had its start. Following the release of Ten Thousand Mornings, the Howlands spent nine months capturing Peter's engaging and dynamic above-ground performances at venues in and around Boston, including the beautiful 800-seat Somerville Theatre and the intimate Club Passim in Harvard Square. The result is a 70-minute slice of Peter's performing life, featuring concert footage, interview segments, and some very special guests including David Goodrich, Kris Delmhorst, Jeffrey Foucault, Jennifer Kimball, Erin McKeown, Chris Smither, Sean Staples, and Anita Suhanin.

For Peter Mulvey fans, this film captures and preserves an important musical period in his career. If you're not familiar with Peter, this will be a great introduction to this fabulous guitarist, songwriter & consummate entertainer. Peter is such a prolific song writer that he has to drop many songs from his performance list because he just can't perform them all and he needs to play the new material. This DVD was done at a time when he was still performing the best of his earlier songs like Black Rabbit, Out here and If love is not enough. But it also includes some of his newer songs and "covers" as well. When Peter covers a song, he makes it his own interpretation and it's usually an improvement on the original. There's a great list of guest artists, as well, including Peter's long-time sidekick and co-writer, David "Goody" Goodrich. It also documents his recording of the "Ten thousand mornings" CD which was all recorded in the subways of Cambridge, Massachusetts. The quality of the video is good, but not great. At several points the audio is slightly out of sync with the video, but the magic of the music and the performances is captured and that's what really counts! I purchased this DVD and will treasure it for a long time.
