Mustard’s Retreat—David Tamulevich, Michael Hough and Libby Glover—will bring its  “music to cure what ails you” to the Hurdy Gurdy 

David, Michael and Libby are accomplished songwriters and musicians, whose original material can be witty and fun, insightful and profound.  Their music might invoke memories of small towns, high school, first and last loves, places one has been, or perhaps dreamed of.  Excellent instrumentalists, they accompany themselves on a variety of instruments, including guitar, dulcimer, electric bass, mandolin, harmonica and pennywhistle.  

Mustard’s Retreat began as a duo in 1974, when David Tamulevich and Michael Hough met while working as short order cooks in Ann Arbor, MI. Both were on hiatus from their studies at the University of Michigan.   Discovering a mutual interest in writing and performing music, they put together three songs one day after work, and performed them at the legendary Ark coffeehouse’s open mike night.  They were an instant success, and immediately invited back to do a 45-minute set two weeks later. Within a year and a half, they had quit their jobs and were doing music full time.  Forty-four years later, they have 12 highly acclaimed recordings plus four CDs with their songwriting collective, The Yellow Room Gang. They have performed more than 4,000 shows over four decades, logging more than 1 million miles on the road.

 Recently, singer Libby Glover joined with them to make Mustard’s Retreat an outstanding trio. Libby, who can be heard singing backup on some of their recordings will be featured on their next album.

 Whether in performance as a duo or a trio, Mustard’s Retreat represents an eclectic blend of old and new music, augmented with a big dash of storytelling. “We have never performed the same show twice, “ said David Tamulevich. “Each night is its own unique moment.”   Many of these moments are the result of the broad body of original material written both individually and collaboratively by David and Michael Hough, both of whom have musical grounding in the folk music of the 1960s.  ‘For us, the exciting thing is the magic, the shared experience that leaves people entertained and moved, with moments and songs that they will remember, ponder, and rediscover for years to come,” David explained. A performance might include tales of stupid frogs, wandering cadavers, haunted bridges and techno-nerds.
