Scott Kirby


DOVER — Join Peter Mayer and Scott Kirby with special guest Brendan Mayer at Rivermill at Dover Landing for an intimate evening of incredible music and songwriting on Thursday, Sept. 12. Show 7:30 p.m. — doors open at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $30 and include complimentary valet parking and are available by visiting

Peter Mayer and Scott Kirby have been collaborating for the better part of 20 years, since they met in Key West during the recording of Jimmy Buffett’s 1993 Album Barometer Soup. The combination of Peter, his son Brendan and Scott Kirby only happens a handful of times per year and the Rivermill show on September 12th is the only appearance in northern New England in 2013.

Peter Mayer will perform from his extensive repertoire, including from his new release, Goodbye Hello, which features incredible and inspired interpretations of his major influence, The Beatles. As a guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter Mayer has melded a unique and multifaceted writing style, a distinctive voice, and inspired musicianship to create compelling and accessible music that is electrifying in live performance. Mayer has culled influences from his childhood in India that ranged from traditional Indian music to The Beatles, and from his studying and teaching Jazz guitar at Webster University in St. Louis. Add the many years that he has shared the stage with Jimmy Buffett’s Coral Reefer Band, James Taylor, Mac McAnally, Sonny Landreth, Don Henley and others, and you begin to trace the musical storyline of Peter Mayer.

New Hampshire native, Scott Kirby, one of the most requested artists on Sirius XM Radio Margaritaville, brings his brand of coastal-inspired folk rock sometimes referred to as “beach folk” to the stage. Although the comparison to Jimmy Buffett is natural because of Scott Kirby’s coastal life, his storytelling style of songwriting and often humorous live performances are reminiscent of folks like Harry Chapin, Jerry Jeff Walker and Steve Goodman with a dash of James Taylor thrown in. Kirby released his first studio CD in 1993, and followed up with four more through 2007 before his latest release “Row Me Home” in 2009, and he continues to tour extensively around the country appearing at festivals, clubs and theaters, performing more than 100 shows each year. for more information.

Brendan Mayer joins the tour for the second year. Brendan has been performing all around Nashville with the recently formed group, Brendan Mayer and the Marathon in addition to performing dozens of dates internationally as a duo and trio with Peter Mayer. Visit for more information.

9/11 Message from Peter Mayer

Posted in Trop Rock Artists | Comments Off on 9/11 Message from Peter Mayer

A “911” message from PETER MAYER:
What Matters

“I was riding up the elevator of a downtown Chicago hotel on the morning of
September 11th, 2001, breakfast in hand, when a woman next to me said; “did
you hear about the plane hitting the world trade center”? Back in my room I
turned on the news. Thoughts in my head of a freak accident or pilot error
quickly gave way to the unfolding calamity of our generation. As I heard Dan
Rather reporting, it became clear that this was not a just an accident or a
mistake, but an intentional act of violence that would, in the coming hours,
end nearly 3000 lives and change all of our lives forever. My wife and I had
planned to have our two young children come to visit me in Chicago while I
was on tour with Jimmy Buffett. They were due to take their first flight
without us that morning. But planes hit the twin towers and all our plans,
routines and expectations for that day were pushed aside while we tried to
take in what had just happened and care in whatever way we could for those
affected by the tragedy and those we loved around us.

This day, 10 years later, I think about and pray for those who lost their
lives, and the families and loved ones that still bear the burden and work
through the difficult questions of that loss. I also hope that we come face
to face with this “today” we have been given with courage, faith, and love
for that which matters most in our lives.

My mom had an old crank flour sifter that she used to make bread. I still
remember the sound of that crank and the soft perfect flour that floated out
of the clumped mess she began with. With the crowded airwaves, violent news,
loud conversations, and chaos of what life can be now, I sometimes wish for
a sifter to take what I’m holding, and refine the mess into my very best. I
try to remember though, the point is not perfection, but to take one more
step toward making something real and essential, like bread for the table,
something useable, and ready for sharing with others again. In remembering
today we can’t wish the world into a perfect place, but we can begin by
meeting fear, hurt and hatred with the best of what we’ve got; Love.”
<Thanks, Terry Lederer>
