March will be one of those months that we put two acts onstage who have been around the folk scene for a while and have cemented solid reputations. Rachae Kilgour may be someone about whom you will be able to say, “I saw her when…” because I think consensus is that, as well-respected as she is around the singer-songwriter scene, she is going much further. Her songwriting is really something. As for Mustard’s Retreat, their erstwhile leader, David Tamulevich, and I have been talking about them making the trip from Michigan for some time. We finally made it happen. David is also the head of Tamulevich Artist Management and he has been a real supporter of RHR for years. I need to mention that fans of Mustard’s Retreat from Michigan have already bought their tickets and are making the trip to see their heroes in Jamestown. You should too!

Joyful, uplifting, intelligent, thought-provoking, insightful, original and timeless, Mustards Retreat is Libby Glover, Michael Hough and David Tamulevich. The trio met in 1975, performing together off and on throughout the late 70’s until a permanent move left Hough & Tamulevich on their own. Success and praise continued to follow the duo for the next 40 years, during which time they released a series of acclaimed recordings, traveled more than a million miles and performed more than 6,000 shows.
Libby moved back to Michigan in 2014, and found the old chemistry was still there, deepened by the years of performing, stagecraft, songs, and the abiding friendship they all shared.
