Peter Mayer Brings Holiday Cheer with Christmas Tour by Tracy Geibel

Wednesday, Dec. 7

For 16 years, musician Peter Mayer has celebrated the holidays with a Christmas tour.

Mayer will return to Erie on Wednesday, Dec. 7 for the Stars and Promises Christmas Tour, Wings of Angels, with the Jimmy Buffett Coral Reefers at Mercyhurst University’s Mary D’Angelo Performing Arts Center.

The tour has become a holiday favorite nationwide.

“This is the greatest show to come through Erie,” one Facebook user wrote on the local event’s page. “By far the most entertaining, genuine, and impactful show I’ve ever seen in a small setting … If you’re a fan of music in any way, see this show.”

A singer and guitarist, Mayer hopes people can relate to the songs he writes.

“Mayer’s songs are crafted like shaker furniture, with no place for superfluous embellishments or throwaway lines,” said Acoustic Guitar magazine. “[His] world is bright and hopeful and the transcendent nature of his lyrics … explore the mysteries of life … Mayer’s fluid, clean, and tremendously intriguing guitar playing is topped with warm, rich vocals. This is music for the soul.”

The Erie show benefits Blended Spirits Ranch, a local organization that uses equine-assisted learning and psychotherapy to help Erie County youth, families, adults, and veterans. – Tracy Geibel
