Mustard's Retreat

Michael Hough and David Tamulevich formed the folk duo Mustard's Retreat in 1974 in Ann Arbor, MI. Both men were cooks, Connecticut natives, songwriters, and former members of church choirs. As Mustard's Retreat, the two friends performed in front of an audience for the first time at The Ark on one of the coffeehouse's open mic nights. Hough is accomplished on the Autoharp, guitar, and bass. Tamulevich lends his skills with the harmonica, guitar, penny whistle, and dulcimer.

A short time after that amateur appearance, the duo landed the job of house band for a local bar. It was the first time Hough and Tamulevich earned pay for performing. In less than two years, they were earning enough with their music to leave their cook jobs behind. In 1979, Mustard's Retreat recorded a self-titled debut album. It was four years before a sophomore work was completed, Home by the Morning, released under the Red House Records label; another four years and another album, Midwinter's Night.

Hough and Tamulevich spent the next few years traveling across the East Coast and through the Midwest, performing at festivals, bars, and clubs. It would be 1994 before the duo recorded its next full-length offering, 5 Miles or 50,000 Years. It was followed in 1997 by The Wind and the Crickets, recorded under the Palmetto Records label and produced by Garnet Rogers. Some of the family-suitable tunes folk fans can find on this duo's albums are "Gather the Family," "The Volunteer Song," and "Festival Night." ~ Charlotte Dillon

Best that you've been a genuine figure on the streets with a real tragedy behind you before chattering about hopelessness . Dylan had the gift of empathy these slick and surface gentlemen could never approach.

The song "wreck of Julie plante" is about the lake at the end of my street. I can't find if its a true story. Just found a book and short movie. Didn't read/see either yet.

Can't get this out of my head. Unfortunatel y , this only comes one rarely, even on my Mustard's Retreat station. It's not on YouTube either, and I'm practically broke on iTunes, so I can't buy it.

Only recently discovered Pandora and really appreciate the sounds I hear. Right now, I am listening to Mustard's Retreat. Had never heard of them before but appreciate their harmonies and lyrics. I like folk, country western, spirituals, old hymns, and some classical music, too. Simply put, I like music, especially music you can sing along with.

I saw these guys in Ann Arbor many weekends at the Heidelburg Rathskeller in 1979. Even took my 10yr old daughter who now has an appreciation for folk music. Barb...their stuff is available on Amazon. BTW, they write almost, if not all, their own material.

Used to listen to these guys in Ann Arbor every chance I got-- One of lines in "You Know You've Been In Ann Arbor too long when..." lists that went around was "You Know where Mustard's Retreat got its name"
