Folk duo Mustard's Retreat to perform
Mustard's Retreat, a folk duo that presents an eclectic blend of stories, traditional songs and contemporary music, will perform a free outdoor concert Monday, July 8, at UW-Eau Claire.
     The Summer Session Programs show will begin at 7 p.m. on the Central Campus Mall (rain site: Schofield Auditorium). Refreshments will be sold. Audience members may bring blankets or chairs for lawn seating.
     David Tamulevich and Michael Hough take audiences through a wide musical landscape --  from gentle love songs and Irish-type ballads to foot-stomping folk songs and even a few tall tales. Performing on guitar, electric bass, dulcimer, harmonica and penny whistle, Mustard's Retreat frequently has been heard on National Public Radio and has performed at such prestigious venues as the Philadelphia Folk Festival, the Boston Folk Festival, the Kerrville Folk Festival, the Kate Wolf Festival and the New Bedford Summerfest.
     Also on campus during the week of July 8 are these free events:
  • "Dodsworth" (1936), William Wyler's film adaptation of Sinclair Lewis' novel, will screen Tuesday and Thursday at noon and 7 p.m. in Davies Theatre. The drama about a Midwestern industrialist who retires early and takes his wife on a long-promised tour of Europe continues the Summer Cinema series about people making moral choices in an immoral world.
         "While other writers were turning out novels ridiculing American materialism and glorifying the expatriate existence, Sinclair Lewis conceived a businessman-hero and showed him to be a true dreamer, while his culture-mad wife, longing to be enriched by life in Europe, was a foolish horror," wrote Pauline Kael.
         The 101-minute black-and-white film will screen via DVD projection.
  • UW-Eau Claire and area jazz musicians will perform from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday on the Central Campus Mall (rain site: The Cabin of Davies Center). A variety of grilled lunch items will be sold.

     Summer Session Programs continue through Aug. 1. A complete schedule is available from Activities and Programs, Davies Center 133, 836-4833.
