Musicians Peter Mulvey And Willy Porter Ad Lib In The Spirit of Lamplighter Sessions


Milwaukee based singer songwriters, and terrific guitarists, Peter Mulvey and Willy Porter are no strangers to Lake Effect

Both have performed in our studios many times and it’s always a pleasure to welcome each of them back. But we recently got them to play some tunes together, which is not usually how it works.

Thanks to the now yearly Lamplighter Sessions at the Café Carpe in Fort Atkinson, they’re in the same place at the same time. And in the spirit of those sessions, which involves no rehearsal before the actual gig, Peter and Willy sat down in the studio to play three songs.
