Part of the 20th Season of the UU Coffeehouse music series

http://www.petermayer.net/

Peter Mayer writes songs for a small planet

—songs about interconnectedness and the human journey; about the beauty and the mystery of the world. Whimsical, humorous, and profound, his music breaks the boundaries of "folk", and transcends to a realm beyond the everyday love song, to a place of wonder at the very fact of life itself. 

Peter began playing the guitar and writing songs when he was in high school. He studied Theology and music in college, and then spent two years in seminary. After deciding that the priesthood wasn't for him, he took a part-time job as a church music director for 8 years, while performing at clubs and colleges, and writing and recording his music. In 1995, he quit his job and started touring full-time. Since then, Peter has gradually gained a dedicated, word-of-mouth following, playing shows from Minnesota to Texas, New England to California. He has nine CDs to his credit, and has sold over 70 thousand of them independently. 

Anitra Jay opening on the main stage at 8 p.m.

<a href="http://www.anitrajay.com/#Anitra Jay">Anitra Jay</a>, who lives in Charlotte, has roots in jazz, soul, and Gospel with inspirations from Bill Withers to Erykah Badu. Her music brings a down-to-earth blend of neo-soul, poetry, and soul-catching melodies. Anitra was recently nominated for Best Singer-songwriter of 2013 with the Charlotte Music Awards.

Her appearance at the UU Coffeehouse will follow a few days after the release of "<a href="https://soundcloud.com/anitra-jay/sets/preview-songs-from-crown-glory#Crown & Glory">Crown & Glory</a>." a five-Song EP dedicated to natural hair. Anitra Jay first set out to create a Natural Hair themed anthem with her Single "The Natural Hair Song," released in 2011.

The Coffeehouse is sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Columbia. We offer a family friendly, smoke-free listening environment for the appreciation of original singer/songwriter music. The majority of the musicians who play at the UU tour nationally and internationally.

The UU Coffeehouse, which opened its 20th season in September 2013, presents a range of acoustic music with connections to folk, blues, Celtic, bluegrass, jazz, and international music. Featuring musicians who tour nationally and internationally, the UU is a favorite performing and listening room for musicians who bring unique original music to the Columbia area.
