Folk Duo Mustard's Retreat and Other
Free Events Offered at UW-Eau Claire 

MAILED: June 24, 2002

         EAU CLAIRE  Mustard's Retreat, a folk duo that presents an eclectic blend of stories, traditional songs and contemporary music, will present a free outdoor concert on Monday, July 8, at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
         The Summer Session Programs show will begin at 7 p.m. on the Central Campus Mall (rain: Schofield Auditorium). Refreshments will be sold. Audience members are invited to bring blankets or folding 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 has been frequently 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.
         Sing Out! magazine called the duo's fifth LP, "The Wind and the Crickets" (1997), "insightful and intricate [with] exquisite harmonies." Their live shows are filled with warmth and large doses of humor, appealing to audiences of all ages.
         Also on campus during the week of July 8 are these free events:

         Summer Session Programs continue through Aug. 1. A complete schedule is available from Activities and Programs, Davies Center 133, (715) 836-4833.
