I just found this new video on Youtube that was taken of us earlier this month at the New Bedford Folk Festival….sining ” The Thimble Island Ghost”. a song Michael Hough and I wrote. The Thimble Island are in my home town of Branford CT..and you can take a boat tour around them and hear the many stories about them. It make for a beautiful afternoon trip….just a couple miles off I-95. ( No, we get no kick back on this!!!! 🙂 It is just one of those little gems of a place to see you might never know about…..and its my hometown 🙂
Make Your Own Luck is available now!!

Mustard’s Retreat comes full circle with a new album, new shows, and a return to a trio
Over more than 40 years making music together, Mustard’s Retreat has established a reputation around the region as a talented and entertaining folk duo — two guys and two guitars.
However, the group actually started out as a trio — and for a new album and current concerts, original member Libby Glover has rejoined David Tamulevich and Michael Hough. Her presence brings a whole new dimension to the Mustard’s Retreat sound, yet the transition sounds just like it feels — perfectly natural. Continue reading
So there is this little slice of wonder in Plymouth, IN called the Wild Rose Moon. We just did 2 wonderful shows there: a Friday night concert….and then this radio show on Saturday morning…that is going to be broadcast on WVPE on Monday night. The location is great, the community even better :-)….and the show ..really…you just need to hear it. Grand fun was had by all. We were the featured guests 🙂 Cant wait to get back there!!!
We’re thrilled to announce the our new CD is available for Pre-order! This recording is the first with the whole trio featuring Libby Glover and we couldn’t be more proud of the songs and production.
“Make Your Own Luck” came together organically: Michael had begun recording to get good versions down of his new songs and old favorites. The group had released a song in March 2017 about the Flint Water Crisis called Take the Children and Run. Soon after, David recorded a new song of his called The Whisper of the Stars, loosely based on his family’s stories from Lithuania, with award winning songwriter/producer David Barrett (also of The Yellow Room Gang). It became clear by Summer 2017 that a CD was coming together.
Featuring the trio with Libby Glover on every song along with special guest appearances by David Barrett, Jim Bizer, Annie & Rod Capps, Danny Cox, Alan Finkbeiner, Drew Howard, Cindy Klein, Danny Kolton, Jan Krist, Bob Lizik, David Mosher and Jon Pousette-Dart. David Barrett also produced many of the songs.
We expect to have them in our hands before the end of the month. And be sure to mark your calendar for July 26th when we’ll be celebrating the release at The Ark in Ann Arbor.
