“If constellations had been named in the 20th century, I suppose we would see bicycles.”
The Trustees are excited to announce a unique partnership that celebrates nature, biking, and music! What could be better?
Since 2017, singer songwriter Peter Mulvey has had at least one tour exclusively via bicycle each year. The goal? He wanted to change the nature of what it meant to be a touring musician for himself. The decades of gas guzzling human-transport measures he had to interact with annually became a dilemma for Peter in sharing his art. In turn, he decided to make it his mission to have at least one tour a year to be traveled by human-power and found solace in doing so as he was already an avid cyclist.
Since its inception, Peter has pedaled to hundreds of gigs and across thousands of miles. He’s toured via bicycle along the west coast, southwest states, mountain states, the Midwest and the NE. This year, he will be touring exclusively with the Trustees, at five diverse properties across the Commonwealth. We encourage visitors to bicycle to the performance and experience the beauty of fall in New England.
On September 8, 2023, we are thrilled to host Peter for a special performance at Notchview. With more than 3,000 acres of rolling terrain and 25 miles of groomed ski trails, Notchview, a part of the Hoosac Range in the Berkshire Hills, offers an idyllic escape all year round. These performances are designed to be outdoors and low impact. Please bring a comfortable camping chair or picnic blanket of your choice. Limited camp chairs will be provided for accessible seating.
