Hello everyone! Greeting from the snow belt in Ann Arbor MI. A nice time to not have to be driving 300 miles..or even 30,,,for a show. A day for shoveling, and perusing seed catalogs…and working towards the new CD. There is A LOT happening on that front, all very exciting..time consuming…but making serious progress….don’t know if we will have it out for April….but definitely by June…and it will be worth the wait. A lot of great new songs that have taken 5?? years to write or gather..which is typical for us…but we feel “ it takes time to make a quality brew”. 🙂
Please check out our tour schedule. We are very excited about where we are going and the shows we are doing this year…and that Libby is going to make most if the trips with us. And…3 times going to the UP ( Upper Peninsula of Michigan)..April, July and August….that is pretty much heaven!
Hoping we get to see you soon. Stay warm , stay well….and best wishes….
This photo was taken by Jim Holmes at the amazing Pemberville Opera House in Pemberville OH last Fall…great little town….a stunning restored opera house with tremendous acoustics..Beeker’s General Store is a must…it has been in operation since the late 1800s…really a blast from the past worth seeing!!
It has been a long time since I have updated this. Sorry, but life has been what it has been: ups, downs, busy..as we all are.
Mustard’s Retreat has been doing a lot of shows, as many of you know….( and I would urge to to sign up for our mailing list, and check us out on Facebook for the most up to date info). We are just back from a northern Michigan tour with The Yellow Room Gang that was just tremendous: getting ” Up North” in MI always a…wonder…a blessing..and the UP ( Upper Peninsula) is like nothing else…really the spiritual heart of Michigan.
We have some exciting festivals coming up: The Flint Folk Festival on July 22, Harsen’s Island Festival on July 22, Thumbfest on Sept 2 in Lexington, MI…more info on our calendar page.
And, slowly but surely we are moving towards a new recording. This will be the first official recording that includes Libby Glover..who did some vocals on a few memorable tracks on our first couple of recordings..but has never done an entire album with us. It is VERY exciting for us to have her back singing with us after all her travels! The new CD will have some spectacular songs 🙂
So come see us play! We love hearing from you. And I will try to update this page more often!! David
Most of you know of our abiding love and connection with Flint MI. This song and video are among the things we are doing to try and help: maybe if enough people share it will get the politicians to do their jobs. Thank you.
